My expectation is the spec will normatively state whether an  
element's attributes (e.g. <widget> element has id, version, etc.)  
are required or not in a configuration document.

I think this information is clear in the 23-July-2009 CR but it is  
not clear in the TSE where the required information is embedded in  
non-normative Authoring Guidelines.
