I think that is clearer.  Or something like 

 When there is a default-value-providing declaration of an attribute for
an element type, an
 XML processor that processes that declaration (which a validating
 processor is required to do) must supply the default value of that  
 attribute when the attribute does not appear in a start tag for that
 element type (5.2).

if the WG cares to figure out a less ugly standard term for
"defualt-value-providing"
