Is it possible to disable the (extremely annoying) behavior of SharePoint whereby it rejects "empty" documents? I need to do this because I'm programmatically creating documents where the template may be empty.

I wasn't able to find a way to disable this behavior, however, I was able to upload an empty template file to SharePoint using SharePoint designer. In my case this should suffice.
