Personally I found putting square brackets around it even more confusing
-- it looks like some important piece of syntax to me.

If there is ambiguity (personally I'm not convinced there is) wouldn't
it be better to put note below table saying eg:

Value "unspecified" in the second or third column of the table indicates
that the corresponding pseudo-attribute is not specified on xml-model
processing instruction.

What do you think?
