When the empty value is selected in a TypedChoiceField this is not passed through the coerce function.
I suppose this is what could be deduced from the existence of the empty_value parameter, but it was very surprising to me indeed.
Current description here:
My personal feeling would be to send all values through coerce, but I suppose the alternative would be to simply document this behavior more explicitly.
