As 23282d is an actual tag on the site, is there an upstream ticket on core.trac.wordpress.org to reference for this behaviour (and/or to fix the behaviour?)

There are some scenarios where an empty tag should still return a valid response (e.g., when it has 'content', purpose, etc).

IMO, the default should be to 404 these, but there are people who're using them in the wild.

A core fix, therefore, becomes rather complicated.

Let's fix here in the meantime?

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
