Status: Rejected
Change Description: no change
Rationale: Most attributes cannot be specified in a conformant manner by
providing just the attribute name; to phrase that in a slightly different way:
Using empty-attribute syntax to specify those attributes is a conformance
error. Therefore, it's accurate to state that  "certain attributes may be
specified by providing just the attribute name", with the implication being
that some cannot by specified that way.
