The new quick introduction includes:

  Attributes are placed inside the start tag, and consist of a name and
  a value, separated by an "=" character. The attribute value can be
  left unquoted if it is a keyword, but generally will be quoted.

"Generally will be" seems to be a prediction that the spec doesn't need
to make, and could be seen as a recommendation for authors to quote
attributes even when they're unnecessary.

Could we simply omit that (finishing the sentence at "keyword")?
