Karl -

Yes, I think that answers the question (i.e., it's my misunderstanding).

So it's treating |\endcsname| as a delimiting matching token for the macro's (non) argument collection.

Ah, TeX.  It's amazing how one can write TeX code that seems to make complete sense, yet have it mean something entirely different.

Do you mean
? I think the above is redefining \csname, not the null CS.
