Wouldn't it be easier to add that requirement either before the
attribute is created or when the end tag is omitted from the the
attribute name/value states?
Is it expected that when an end tag token is emitted, it will include
all the attributes as well? I would have expected that the attributes
would be dropped during tokenisation, rather than just being ignored
during the tree construction phase.
