Section 2.2 says tables "can contain values of all types

says "up to the first integer key with a nil value in the
table" (keys can't have nil values), and "next" which says
"There is no difference between a field not present in a
table or a field with value nil".
Roberto's reply to a similar comment was:
Tables cannot contain nils, but arrays can.
