As the tests were originally written earlier NIST suite and in the initial
release, the tests required that non-validating parsers provide default
attribute values.  The DOM WG determined that in the case of non-validating
parsers, providing default attribute nodes was optional (see
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-dom-ts/2002Mar/0002.html).

To address this interpretation, I modified the named tests so that the tests
are only applicable to validating processors.
