As a general rule, you should always return all applicable attributes, even
though some may contain 'unknown' or 'no-value' values.  Otherwise it's
difficult for the client to determine which attributes you support.

I wouldn't change it.

The ?no-value? value is used for a supported attribute to which no value
has been assigned.
