set autonullfields should affect everything, not just XDML. This is a
global command, and affects OODML as well as XDML. The nice feature with
this is you can use:

set autonullfields off

And then for a rowset where you want nulls:

rMyRowset.autoNullFields := true

And it will override, for just that one rowset, the global setting.
