    Description

      Currently cast("15:42:00" as timestamp) doesn't return NULL, but it should, as the resulting timestamps are more or less useless:

      • other fileformats than text do not support them
      • most built-in unctions don't support them - even those where it could make sense

      IMPALA-5942 contains more details about these issues.
