It's true that both Navigator 4 and IE 4 require the width and
height attributes in order to make sense of the OBJECT element,
but the current draft of W3C does *not* require the width and
height attributes [1]; they are just #IMPLIED:

<!ELEMENT OBJECT - - (PARAM | %inline; | %blocklevel;)* -- generic
embedded object -->
<!ATTLIST OBJECT
[...]
  height      %Length;   #IMPLIED  -- suggested height --
  width       %Length;   #IMPLIED  -- suggested width --
