Using attr() method to retrieve attribute that doesn't exist returns 'undefined'

This is regarding the attr() method, and attempting to fetch that value of an attribute that doesn't exist.

In 1.5.2, an empty string is returned.

In 1.6, the value is undefined.

This has been illustrated in the this jsFiddle:

1.5.2 also returned undefined, but not as consistently as the current jQuery. This is intended behavior.
