      Optional attributes in Chapter 19 of ODF 1.3, with no default values. The following is a summary of a spreadsheet created by Francis Cave. The full spreadsheet can be viewed here.

      chart:legend-align 19.22 Only used when the value of chart:legend-position is bottom, end, start or top. Should it have a default value in those cases?
      db:as-template 19.34  
      db:data-source-setting-is-list 19.39  
      db:is-ascending 19.56  
      db:is-autoincrement 19.57  
      db:is-clustered 19.58  
      db:is-empty-allowed 19.59  
      db:is-nullable 19.62 Bizarre that the values are not true and false...
      db:is-unique 19.64  
      db:max-row-count 19.68  
      dr3d:enabled 19.97  
      dr3d:lighting-mode 19.99 Possibly different defaults for use with <chart:plot-area> (19.99.2) and <dr3d:scene> (19.99.3).
      dr3d:projection 19.102 A default value is specified when the attribute is used with <draw:enhanced-geometry> but not when used with either of the other two.
      dr3d:shade-mode 19.103 A default value is specified when the attribute is used with <draw:enhanced-geometry> but not when used with either of the other two.
      dr3d:specular 19.106  
      draw:align 19.111  
      draw:dots1 19.135  
      draw:dots2 19.137  
      form:auto-complete 19.252  
      form:current-state 19.261  
      form:focus-on-click 19.274  
      form:list-linkage-type 19.284  
      form:list-source-type 19.286 Since the value value:list cannot be used with <form:combobox>, why is this not enforced by the schema?
      form:navigation-mode 19.295  
      form:orientation 19.297  
      form:repeat 19.302  
      form:tab-cycle 19.309  
      form:visual-effect 19.317  
      number:min-denominator-digits 19.353  
      number:min-exponent-digits 19.354  
      number:min-integer-digits 19.355 The text specifies how to interpret absence of the attribute when used in <number:fraction>, but not in the other two cases.
      number:min-numerator-digits 19.357  
      number:possessive-form 19.359  
      number:style 19.362.1 A value is presumably meaningless if the value of the number:format-source attribute is not fixed.
      office:boolean-value 19.371 Only evaluated if the value of the meta:value-type attribute on the corresponding <meta:user-defined> element is boolean. Maybe this attribute must have a specified value in such cases? Otherwise, a default value is needed.
      office:display 19.378 The meanings of the values true and false are not specified. Why not? They are in almost all other cases.
      presentation:class 19.393  
      presentation:play-full 19.412  
      presentation:user-transformed 19.431  
      smil:calcMode 19.443 Default value is not specified when used with <anim:transitionFilter>.
      smil:fill 19.450 The default value may be default, as in 19.406 and 19.458.
      smil:fillDefault 19.451  
      smil:repeatCount 19.456  
      style:leader-color 19.488  
      style:leader-style 19.489  
      style:leader-type 19.492  
      style:leader-width 19.493  
      style:num-letter-sync 19.505  
      style:type 19.519.2,3  
      style:volatile 19.521  
      table:function 19.647.3  
      table:grouped-by 19.650  
      table:protected 19.700.3  
      table:refresh-delay 19.705  
      table:show-details 19.713  
      table:show-empty 19.714  
      table:table 19.732  
      table:table-background 19.733  
      text:caption-sequence-format 19.769  
      text:continue-numbering 19.786  
      text:current-value 19.791 Presumably, a default value would be meaningless in this case.
      text:display 19.802.3,4,7-12  
      text:fixed 19.809  
      text:footnotes-position 19.810  
      text:is-hidden 19.821  
      text:page-adjust 19.851.2,3  
      text:protected 19.855  
      text:reference-format 19.860 The text generated from the schema is unnecessarily repetitive, since the possible values are the same for both <text:reference-ref> and <text:bookmark-ref>.
      text:select-page 19.869.3  
      text:start-numbering-at 19.875  
      text:table-type 19.885  
      xlink:show 19.917 No default value is specified when this attribute is used with <draw:a>, <draw:area-circle>, <draw:area-polygon>, <draw:area-rectangle>, <meta:hyperlink-behaviour>, <presentation:sound> or <text:a>.
