If you leave this enabled, please make it _abundantly_ clear that this is
not technically correct. Better would be to add an "uber strict" mode
which checks this as well.

Note that this will also prevent users from omitting #FIXED or other
non-#IMPLIED attributes, it will disallow the well-supported literal
delimiter omission feature (foo=bar vs foo="bar"), and it will disallow
the partly-supported attribute name omission feature (<h1 center> vs <h1

Now, it would also disallow the commonly misunderstood <foo/ syntax (with
its resulting trailing '>' in the output).
