An assembly cannot have a null name. This is clearly specified in ECMA-335, which defines .NET and the CLI:
Name shall index a non-empty string in the String heap [ERROR]
It’s probably just that no-one has gotten round to changing it to non-nullable. You can create your own pull-request on Github to change it to not-null, or raise a bug report if you like.
