+It looks like ImplicitReferenceConversion() does a check from null to
+a reference type:
+if (expr is NullLiteral && !target_type.IsValueType)
+	return new EmptyCast (expr, target_type);
+and a comment indicates that the same checks should be done in 
+StandardConversionExists() (indeed there is a FIXME there related to
+this very issue). The problem is that to do the check an expression is
+needed, while StandardConversionExists() takes only types.
+Hope this helps.
