The other answer I got to this question quoted the XML Lang spec
(section 3.1):

"Validity constraint - Unique Att Spec:
No attribute may appear more than once in the same start-tag."

This seemed to deal with the issue pretty conclusively: I had just
failed to look under "start-tags" while thinking about attributes ;-)

Is this all about to change with the 30 June update?
