      Description

      The existing org.apache.kafka.connect.transforms.MaskField SMT always uses the null value for the type of field. It'd be nice to optionally be able to specify a literal value for the type, where the SMT would convert the literal string value in the configuration to the desired type (using the new Values methods).

      Use cases: mask out the IP address, or SSN, or other personally identifiable information (PII).

      Since this changes the API, and thus will require a KIP.
