That's a valid point, one of view in this discussion, although there are no
attributes to separate it from in XHTML2 or a current Strict DTD. Anyhow,
just being better than bad attributes doesn't make it good. Just being there
already doesn't conclude in a right to stay. But maybe these combined make
the attribute keepworthy.
