minimised attribute questions

can anyone clear the following up for me:
One of the changes in xhtml 4.0 from html4.01 is that minimised
attributes are no longer supported.

"XML does not support attribute minimization. Attribute-value pairs must
be written in full. Attribute names such as compact and checked cannot
occur in elements without their value being specified."

the example given is <dl compact="compact">
What then would the unminimsed version of the input attribute checked,
and the select attribute selected be? checked="checked"? 
In the DOM form.input.checked would have a value of true or false -- so
should it be checked="true" or checked="false"?
