EDD Read/Write Rules and Attribute Values

FM's documentation conveniently tells developers that the value of element
attributes can not contain any of the following characters ( ) & | , * + ? < > %
[ ] = ! ; : { } "
Yet, FM uses the attribute value <no value> on export to SGML. Using the
forbidden < and > characters.

What should be added to the read/write rules file to correct the problem? My
best guess from page 213 of the developers guide is:

value "" is fm value "<no value>";

Am I correct? Will this cause problems with any round trip of SGML?

Going to test it, but some independent confirmation would be nice.
