Inert Value

An inert value has the expected type but is intentionally selected to avoid meaningful execution. An empty array could be an inert value, if the result of using an empty array is that nothing of note happens. Inert Values can be used to avoid Novel Scenarios involved in handling a nil value. Inert Values can also be return as a fallback for a Failed function as an alternative to throwing an error.
