Maybe the spec should require quotes when an attribute value contains `, <, or one of

U+0009, U+000A, U+000B, U+000C, U+000D, U+0020, U+002F, U+00A0, U+1680, U+180E, U+180F, U+2000, U+2001, U+2002, U+2003, U+2004, U+2005, U+2006, U+2007, U+2008, U+2009, U+200A, U+2028, U+2029, U+202F, U+205F and U+3000

for better compat with legacy browsers, and to avoid security issues.
