SAX: Implied Attributes

Should SAX level 1 allow parsers to report implied attributes by
providing null for AttributeList.getValue() (it does not currently do
so)?  The only application I can think of right now is architectural
forms, where an implied attribute can prevent automatic derivation.

Thanks, and all the best,
