Attr.isSpecified is always true in Docuverse SDK only because the SAXReader,
which builds a DOM Document from SAX events, has no way to tell whether an
attribute is specified or not.  Attr implementation itself allows creation
of 'default' Attr.  As far as misintrepreting the DOM spec is concerned, I
would have to be a serious idiot to do that since I am in the DOM IG just as
you are.  I am busy but I am not that busy.
