From IRC: No. The NULL repos_name in authz_get_tree_access

  baton.qualified_repos_path = apr_pstrcat(pool, repos_name,
                                           ":", path, (char *)NULL);

cases qualified_repos_path to be truncated to "" which doesn't follow
the rules for input to is_applicable_section. Converting NULL to ""
means that the truncation doesn't occur and is_applicable_section gets
input it can handle.
