    One can use the LOAD tool to load a table into a feature class and get NULL geometries which is the correct outcome. However you cannot use APPEND to load a table into a feature class as the tool fails in the validation. 

    The APPEND tool is available in Arcpy and LOAD is not so please fix the APPEND tool so it deals with NULL geometries like the LOAD tool does very well. This way these actions can be scripted and not maunal right click load processes.
