bug in XHTML 1.0 Strict DTD for param element

The HTML 4.01 DTD has the name attribute on the param element as #REQUIRED
as does the XHTML 1.1 DTD, and the XHTML 1.0 Transitional and Frameset DTDs.

But the XHTML 1.0 Strict DTD has it just as #IMPLIED.

That seems like a bug.

Even if it's not a bug -- if there's some actual reason (other than a
copy/paste error) why it diverged from HTML 4.01 here -- it should be noted
in the "Differences with HTML 4" section or somewhere else in the spec.

If it is just a bug in the XHTML 1.0 Strict DTD, then it seems like it
should be fixed.
