With _no_ Public field, the server does not tell you what it supports. This
is very different from an empty Public field which would mean the server
supports nothing at all. So in principles, this would be wrong IMHO.

In practice, VLC needs to cope with the NULL case anyway, due to older
live555 versions, unless we start requiring a new version. I do not think
this minor change would justify us doing it.
