Let's not use the term valid in this context, as it's pretty overloaded here.

In the general case, there's no way to know what string values can be
dropped silently, and it's wrong to assume that it can be done safely.

Using a special value (None, a.k.a. nothing in templates) is the only
reasonable indicator that an attribute should be dropped.
