Putting explicit null checks here and there just to fix some tests is 
not worth it in my opinion.
Instead it should be a part of character range checks, as we do now. 
E.g. while on whitespace,
hitting 0 char would mean you're done with whitespace node, and whatever 
node is allowed or expected next
should handle it.
