We thought about this at Orbeon and we think that using a blank value 
for the attribute remains awkward. It is pretty much unseen in XML-based 
languages out there, and it could also indicate that the developer has 
forgotten to put a value for the attribute.

"none" is not a media type, but neither is a blank string. So I am going 
to be a flip-flopper here and get back to the idea that "none" is 
preferable to an empty attribute.
