The specification enumerates all accepted element attributes.  Neither of
them transgresses ASCII boundaries.  Since it can be directly inferred from
the text, the explicit statement about that
<http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#attributes0> technically
is not needed, although it does no harm either.
