What's even more bizarre is that the comment on the COORDS attribute still
mentions it:

<!ENTITY % SHAPE "(rect|circle|poly)">

<!ATTLIST AREA
    ...
    coords  %COORDS #IMPLIED  -- always needed except for shape=default --

Which is the mistake (omission of default makes more sense to me, but the
comment is more likely to be out of date)?
