It seems that someone got bitten very hard in a soft area by a Null one
On a more practical level, Oracle recommended to design the table with
the field where NULLs are to be expected at the end of the table, that
saves a little space and two, as the use of indexes is invalidated in
case of nulls its is better to place the important indexed fields toward
the beginning of the table.
