Of course, while that would enable you to type expressions like

   if 10 < x

without thinking about missing values, it would then mean that you would have to start thinking about missing values every time you typed

   if x < 10

So, you'd address one issue, but create another.


What I meant to write was

    if 10 < value(x)

and

    if value(x) < 10
