> according to the standard, boolean truth value might be: {{TRUE|FALSE|UNKNOWN}}.
> similar queries to the following should be supported:
> {code:java}
> select 1 where null is unknown;
> select 1 where (select cast(null as boolean) ) is unknown;
> {code}
> "unknown" behaves similarily to null. {{(null=null) is null}}
> "All boolean values and SQL truth values are comparable and all are assignable to a site
of type boolean. The value True is greater than the value False, and any comparison involving
the null value or an Unknown truth value will return an Unknown result. The values True and
False may be assigned to any site having a boolean data type; assignment of Unknown, or the
null value, is subject to the nullability characteristic of the target."
