AFAICT, the abbr="" attribute [1] was also "dropped" from <td> and <th>.

I see the document uses "dropped" to mean 'was featured in HTML4 but not in 
HTML5'. Previously, the absence of these features has been described by 
HTML5 being a "clean slate" and these features had not yet justified their 
inclusion in HTML5. Is the document wrong about this or have I misunderstood
