Rather I would say that logical statements evaluate all missings as
true, comparisons regard . as positive infinity (and extended missings
as "bigger" infinities), various sum and total style functions regard
missing as zero, and most other operations regard missing as undefined
and therefore propagate . through to the final calculation.
