It probably was a typo. As you've understood it, attribute values must 
be quoted in XHTML1.0 (XML1.0 sec. 2.3, production 10).

Remember that comments in DTDs aren't to be taken normatively. But 
given the fact that other comments contain quoted attribute values, it 
does seem a bit odd, doesn't it?
