There is such a notion in HTML4, see the link in comment 3. Firefox (as of version 3.6.3) behavior indicates that they have it in their serialization code, too.

I think that Firefox behavior has nice traits (besides being both HTML4 and HTML5 compliant, the serialized code just looks nicer). And matching other browsers is good.

Here are some examples from Firefox:

<option selected> -> <option selected="selected">
<option selected=""> -> <option selected="selected">
<option selected="foo"> -> <option selected="foo">
<option class> -> <option class="">
