I have no problem with the "fill the gap" part of the proposed enhancement. I
think that's perfectly fine. An alternative, of course, would be to enhance the
tags to support those HTML 4.01 attributes that are currently missing.

Where I take issue is allowing the Struts tage to generate non-conforming HTML
according to the HTML 4.01 spec. As I have mentioned, I will veto such a change.
The proposed enhancement can avoid a veto simply by being limited to allowing
only valid HTML 4.01 attributes to be generated.

The analogy with an action returning null is not the right one. The equivalent
of the user deciding to generate the response entirely manually would be
deciding to not use the tag libraries at all. The distinction is important. In
both of those cases, Struts is doing nothing to help. In the case in which the
tag libraries allow the generation of invalid HTML, then Struts is helping to
generate that invalid HTML. That is why I will veto (vote or not).
