Correct, an erratum seems in order.

How about:
HTMLDocument.referrer
HTMLHeadElement.profile
HTMLLinkElement.href
HTMLBaseElement.href
HTMLBodyElement.background
HTMLQuoteElement.cite
HTMLModElement.cite
HTMLObjectElement.codeBase
HTMLObjectElement.data
HTMLAppletElement.codeBase
HTMLAreaElement.href
HTMLScriptElement.src
HTMLFrameElement.longDesc
HTMLFrameElement.src
HTMLIFrameElement.longDesc
HTMLIFrameElement.src
