If they shouldn't be used, why are they listed in the DTD?
Why are some of these reserved attributes in an "IGNORE" section and  
others in the list of acceptable attributes for certain elements.
Why are these reserved attributes not mentioned in the prose?

I think it's a little futile to think of fixing the tools before we  
know for sure why the spec doesn't seem to agree with itself...
