[Bug 12240] "The values 'true' and 'false' are not allowed on boolean attributes." - this also implies that "false" is not a valid attribute name, since ... false="false" ... (meaning the "false" property is 'true') would not be permitted in XML serialization

No, incorrect.  The note contradicts the normative text in this case.  The
normative text says false="false" or true="true" is allowed for boolean
attributes named "false" or "true".  But this is a sufficiently academic
contradiction that maybe it doesn't need to be fixed.
