Conformance checkers have to follow the parsing section. <embed
smörgåsbord="" src="foo"> is thus conforming. The #writing section is
strictly speaking not necessary, it is merely a reverse engineered version
of the parsing section taking the rest of the specification into account.
In this case, it seems it didn't take the "any attribute" rule for <embed>

Why? What if you want to pass a paramater to a plugin with non-ASCII
characters using <embed>?
