Indeed, there is no special value for limited-quirks mode. This is intentional:
there is only one difference between limited- and no-quirks mode, which is the
handling of table cells that only contain images. (In particular, whether room
is left for descenders, the bottom-most part of letters such as "g" or "j".)

All of this is only specified because sites rely on it. Trying to read any more
into it is probably a waste of time. (Including the strings returned by the
attribute; they should be treated as opaque identifiers, rather than words with
any meaning.)
