On : version, Import Items

When attempting to use item import file upload of XML payload with date attribute missing
the following error occurs.

Null pointer error

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Setup an attribute group with 3 date attributes and 3 timestamp attributes.
2. Then use the file upload option from item import. It works fine when we fill in all attributes of the attribute group.
3. However if a value for one of the date attributes is not provided the upload gives a null pointer exception.
4. Note: It works fine when we do not provide a value for the timestamp attributes.
