The remaining attributes are:

* align
* valign
* char
* charoff

Are you suggesting that the char and charoff attributes should also be 
downplayed errors too, or should they also be excluded along with axis 
because they're widely unsupported?

Because it is presentational and CSS handles alignment just fine.  Is 
there a reason align should be considered conforming?  Are you 
suggesting that valign should be fully conforming too, or just a 
downplayed error?
