> 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."

http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/association-of-controls-and-forms.html#form-submission-algorithm

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
values.
