[DateTimeConverter] Tag issue ?

using JSF RI (1_2_04-p02) + Trinidad 1.2.x

I noticed the following, when a "pattern" is null, like

<tr:inputText >
  <tr:convertDateTime pattern="#{null}"/>

A "default" date is visible.

But with f: (using the RI Tag to create the overridden DateTimeConverter)
<tr:inputText >
  <f:convertDateTime pattern="#{null}"/>

nothing is displayed.

The null get's resolved as "" and therefore the DateFormat "parser"
returns no date.

Someone noticed this too ?
