           Summary: AX: Stop returning AccessibilityUIElements backed by a
                    null pointer

In a few places, we call AccessibilityUIElement::create() with a nullptr. This returns a Ref<> backed by a null pointer / object, which is confusing. We should probably return a null RefPtr instead.

One example:

Ref<AccessibilityUIElement> AccessibilityController::focusedElement()
     auto page = InjectedBundle::singleton().page()->page();
     auto root = static_cast<PlatformUIElement>(WKAccessibilityRootObject(page));
     auto rootElement = AccessibilityUIElement::create(root);
     if (auto focusedElement = rootElement->focusedElement())
         return *focusedElement;
     return AccessibilityUIElement::create(nullptr);
