Follow up to #2282119: Make the Entity Field API handle field purging. When base fields are using shared storage, NULL values are allowed for the column they occupy. When copying to dedicated table storage for purging, NULL values are not allowed.

Proposed resolution

Only copy field values to dedicated storage if at least one column in the field schema is NOT NULL in the shared table storage.

Remaining tasks

User interface changes

API changes

Data model changes
