Notice that incoming value, when used by a FormComponent, will never be null because before
validation form components perform the required (see FormComponent.isRequired()) check which
errors out on null values. In the case the FormComponent is not required and the user enters a
null value converters will not be invoked because no type conversion is necessary.
