      Description

      In general, Kafka Streams requires that key and value are non-null for aggregations and join input records. While this requirement is reasonable in general, for KStream-GlobalKTable joins it's questionable for the stream input record key. The join is based on a `keySelector` and it seems to be sufficient to require that the `keySelector` returns a not-null join-key for the stream record.

      We should consider to relax the non-null key requirement for stream-side input records.
