HTML5 object element - classid or not classid?

For object currently these element specific attributes are
defined:
data 
type 
name 
usemap 
width 
height

Later in the text some attribute 'classid' is mentioned:
'1. If the classid attribute is present,' ...
How could it be present if object has no such attribute
and no such attribute is defined in the complete draft
as an unspecific attribute? Or is it? I did not find it with
a search of the browser.
Maybe the first paragraph named '1.' in 4.7.5 can be 
completely skipped in the draft to avoid the confusion?
If there is an attribute 'classid', it should be obviously
defined and the purpose of this additional attribute should
be explained to the audience including an explanation
of its possible values or are this the same values as for
'data' as in HTML4? But than it seems indeed to be 
pretty redundant and should be skipped completely
as done obviously already for some other attributes of
object available in HTML4 but not any more in
HTML5 (by the way, why is 'declare' missing, this sounds
pretty helpful to start objects without the need of 
scripts or internal controls in the referenced object?)
