Can I have a NULL value for a defaulting rule?

Today, we default the Customer PO on the order header to the order line. We do this for ALL customers. I have created a defaulting condition for the exception of 1 customer. For this 1 customer I would like a NULL value to default and appears I cannot easily do this.

I understand the intent of the defaulting rules is to not default NULL.
However, just so you understand what we are trying to do... currently we have setup a defaulting rule where the PO number defaults from the header to the line for all customers. This is the norm and required business process that all order lines have a po number.

The exception to the rule is for 1 customer where we do not want the header PO to default to the line as it requires a different unique value from the header.
The users are forgetting to go back and update this value on the order line.
This affects downstream processing.

We currently have a validation that this cannot be null ~ however because of the current defaulting rule we cannot get the NULL value on the order line....any other suggestions?
