My point is whether WebKit is conforming depends on whether you try to
apply the conformance requirement to individual aspects of how the
attribute is presented or to the entire presentation. Your claim that
it's non-conforming depends on applying it to individual aspects.
That's not misreading the requirement, but it's not the only viable
