      Description

      In the administrative editor for item metadata, an admin can remove entire strings from metadata fields. Upon saving, those fields are kept as empty fields.

      For title, author, ... these empty fields can cause problems. I think it would be better if the action to save edits would actually remove empty fields instead of keeping them.

      In addition to this, it may be useful having a Curation task that can remove empty fields in batch from the entire repository.
