Ok, but when I implement the proposed behaviour, I get a unit test 
failure in TestJSONPostProcessor#testBug59609 where it is explicitly 
checked for refname_matchNr == 1 with matchnumber = "0".

I think the unit test is wrong and I would like to change it, to 
explicitly check that refname_matchNr is null.

What do you think?
