It isn't really clear what it would do with it either, so I suggest that a
conversation about requirements take place on the dev list. Just saying
"support it" doesn't really constitute requirements.

But separately from that, I don't know how I feel about adding attributes
to the defined value syntax of these attributes. We can do it, I guess,
but I don't think we can do it in a vaccuum. Defining new ones of course
would not create any conflicts, but is a serious hassle.
