There's also backward compatibility to consider here; someone somewhere is depending on getting back \0 in his REG_SZes.  If we were to make a change, it could only go in 3.6.  With that restriction, I don't see a particularly nice way to get the same behavior from 3.6+ and 3.5-.

Also, I don't like the idea of having a mismatch between what we set and what we get, even if what we're setting technically shouldn't be allowed.

I'm more inclined to just document that REG_SZ and REG_EXPAND_SZ values may contain nulls if the key was added improperly.
