> Why not define explicitly what does the empty string mean, then?

It *is* defined explicitly:

"If action is the empty string, let action be the document's address of the
form document."


The question is about what is conforming markup for authors to use. HTML5
conformance rules are designed to help avoid author errors. action="" is being
marked non-conforming because it is handled differently than other empty URL
