On this issue I tend to agree with John. If we can write in the
abbreviated syntax

<MyClass property="a"/>

and it is equivalent to

<MyClass>
  <property>a</property>
</MyClass>

then replacing "a" with any other string (including "") should retain
the equivalence (i.e. empty literal instead of unnamed resource)
