+Summary: WebRequest.DefaultWebProxy can't be nulled

+It should be possible to set WebRequest.DefaultWebProxy explicitly to null.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Compile and run the following:
+class X{static void Main(){
+System.Net.WebRequest.DefaultWebProxy = null;
+Actual Results:
+Unhandled Exception: System.ArgumentNullException: null IWebProxy not allowed.
+Parameter name: WebRequest.DefaultWebProxy
+  at System.Net.WebRequest.set_DefaultWebProxy (IWebProxy value) [0x00000]
+  at X.Main () [0x00000]
+Expected Results:
+a silent success
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+MS Framework permits such explicit nulling.
