   To be clear, an SVG file without those attributes absolutely 
_is_ compliant SVG.  However as I understand it a DOM without 
those attributes would not be compliant as the DTD specifies a 
value if they are not set in the document. 

   We include them in our output as they should be harmless and 
makes the output more clearly reflect the internal state that 
was serialized.  That said it should probably be an option to
omit unspecified attributes.
