Excellent point. If [att|=""] is valid and matches nothing, then
:not([att|=""]) is also valid and matches everything. Not sure that's
the desired behaviour here.

I think this should be added to our list of issues. I'm not saying I
disagree with making this work as designed, but I want the whole WG
to agree on that negated behaviour.
