Empties

A key without any operator (:, =, <, etc.) specifies an "empty". Empties are a distinct element type with two primary usecases - the first one is as a global flag/switch/boolean:

enable_debugging!
LOG_LEVEL_INFO
utf_8

The second main usecase is as a spacer or key-only element in an ordered collection, e.g. inside some custom markup DSL:
