Hi Hixie,
   As requested on IRC, here's the revised proposal for rewording the 
start tag syntax.  Only steps 3 and 4 have need to be changed from the 
current spec.

3. The start tag may have a number of attributes, the syntax for which
    is described below. Attribute names must be separated from the tag
    name or a preceding unquoted attribute value, and should be separated
    from a preceding quoted attribute value, by one or more space

4. If the U+002F SOLIDUS character mentioned below is present and the
    final attribute has an unquoted attribute value, there must be one
    or more space characters; otherwise there may be zero or more space
    characters after the final attribute.
