Document conformance of binary attributes is clearly specified, in
section 2.4.2, and means that conforming documents must include
boolean attributes in only one of three forms, e.g. "disabled",
"disabled=''" or "disabled='disabled'", and conformance checkers have
to detect and signal failures to observe this constraint.

What I can't find clearly stated is how this get into the DOM in the
right way, and where, if at all, error recovery happens.  So, to make
this precise, What DOM is built for <input disabled=banana>, and why?
That is, which sections in the spec. give a user agent the necessary
information?

Thanks,
