Before this change, it wasn't possible to create an account or modify an
existing one to be without a resource; this prevented the earlier patch I
committed from working in such a case.  Instead of just undoing this revision,
I'd prefer to see us set a default resource when bind isn't listed in the
feature stanza and the specified resource is empty.
