AREA with no HREF causes warning? Is it a bug?

In an XHTML file, I have this inside a <map>:

  <area shape="default" nohref="nohref" alt="" />

HTML Tidy versions 20000113 and 20000804 both give a warning like

  line 129 column 1 - Warning: area lacks "href" attribute

As far as I can understand after looking at DTD, the <area> is
correctly defined. Is this a minor bug in HTML Tidy?
