[OpenLayers-Dev] Null basemap?

In the past we've always been told that you must have a basemap to use
OpenLayers. "So many things are keyed off of the base map, it must be
there or things just won't work." However, I find this to be an awkward
constraint, particularly if you have an OGC context that you are
loading. OGC contexts have no knowledge of the concept of base map -
everything is just a layer and the "basemap" is naturally the bottom
layer of the context. To get around this, I developed a dummy "Null"
basemap class that always returns blank.gif. Is this an acceptable
solution to the problem? If so, would this be a worthwhile ticket/patch
