Unfortunately, the problem is more complicated than that,
the boundery problem influences the sampling distribution 
under the null hypothesis, as was discussed in the 
help-file I refered to earlier. To make things even more
complicated, multiple imputation is based on the assumption
that the sampling distribution is normal, so if the sampling
distribution becomes to exotic...

Likelihood ratio test don't generalize easily to multiple

I guess that your best option is to just look at the 
size of the variance and decide whether it is small enough
to be considered zero or not.

Hope this helps,
