Why do you want this change? Wouldn't it be just as easy to pass in [] where required instead of undefined?

This 'undefined' is provided by rfc4627_jsonrpc_http:parse_jsonrpc/5 when no params are specified in POST request:
We may fix it there then.

Hmm, interesting. Reading the 1.1 JSON-RPC spec, it's hard to know what to do. So first off, I think you're right to fix it in rfc4627_jsonrpc_http:parse_jsonrpc/5, but the question then becomes: what should be done? My guess is that absent parameters should be treated like [], exactly as you suggested in this commit. The spec says that params is optional, but then says that if it has a value other than an array or object, the server must reject the request with an error, which seems a bit contradictory.
