Scriptrunner Behaviour - remove select list options but keep "None" option

I want to restrict a subtask's Project Specific Select Field custom field options based on other peer subtask's values in the same field. I'm not sure that PSSF custom field type matters here versus a standard select list, but wanted to mention it anyway.

The code below mostly works as expected. I can create a subtask and get all possible options (e.g. "A", "B", "C") for Target Release field. I choose "A" for this subtask. When I create a second subtask, I am presented with the full list of options minus the one I selected in the first subtask (i.e. "B", "C").

However, this is a required field. So normally the form would also present a "None" option as the selected value and thus force the user to make a choice here.  But with the behaviour active, "None" gets removed.  This basically makes a selection by default and also means other things don't trigger as they normally would on field change.

So I added the line to explicitly add "None" to the options list.  Now, it shows TWO None options.  So with my code to prune the choice list, I can either have no None value or two None values.  How do I get the pruned list plus a single default None entry (that's not a valid choice)?
