There has not been any decision.  I think there will have to be an update
to the spec, for example to mention namespace undeclaring (if Namespaces
1.1 is accepted), but I'm hoping there won't be two different infosets.

Attribute normalization happens even when you're not validating
(though of course you can't guarantee that the external subset will be
read).  And it happens even to invalid attributes.  An NMTOKENS
attribute with a NEL in it has a NEL in the [normalized value] in
its infoset.

I agree that in practice (and outside test suites) there are probably
no documents that have NELs in NMTOKEN attributes.

As you know, there are some people who would object very strongly to
