           Summary: What do "defined to contain a URL" and "defined to
                    contain one or more URLs" mean?  There are some cases
                    that are unclear.  For instance, useMap can only
                    contain (a subset of) valid URLs AFAICT, does that
                    count?  Also, obsolete stuff like applet.src has n

Comment:
What do "defined to contain a URL" and "defined to contain one or more URLs"
mean?  There are some cases that are unclear.  For instance, useMap can only
contain (a subset of) valid URLs AFAICT, does that count?  Also, obsolete
stuff like applet.src has no authoring conformance requirements, so it's not
defined to contain anything, there are only algorithms that tell you how to
treat it.  You should make this like "limited to only known values", "limited
to only non-negative numbers", etc., with explicit links wherever you mean it.
