WD-xhtml2-20030131: 'declare' Attribute Within <object> Element

Hi,

Within section 14.1 (the object element), the declare attribute
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-xhtml2-20030131/mod-object.html#adef_object_declare>
is defined as follows:

    declare = "declare"
        When present, this boolean attribute makes the current
        object element a declaration only - not one that is to be
        executed until after the document has completed loading and
        has been called through a user event such as selecting an
        anchor that references the object.

Given that it is a boolean, would it not be clearer to instead allow it
to have a value of "true" or "false", with a default value of "false"?

Thanks,

Dave
