Yup, they are both false. The spec goes to some trouble to make it
clear that IS NULL/IS NOT NULL are not inverses for row values:
NOTE 135 - For all R, "R IS NOT NULL" has the same result as
"NOT R IS NULL" if and only if R is of degree 1. Table 16,
"<null predicate> semantics", specifies this behavior.
What I find odd is the lack of comparable language about arrays.
