This always rather seemed like a preference to me, one that gets
supported by consistency considerations (as some values would require
quotation marks).

Not considering the unquoted attribute value syntax a problem I?d
second consistent use in the spec but would object any further

(I know first-hand that omitting optional tags alone gives people the
creeps, but both optional tags and unquoted attribute values are valid
options for writing HTML.)

Couldn?t but add these two cents,
