Subject: Re: [dita] DITA 1.2 - implementation-specific attributes

Obviously we need to put some design thought into this feature, but I 
think that having this apply to *any* unrecognized attribute is probably 
a little too strong.

I would suggest that it would make more sense to have a separate 
"metadata attributes" declaration attribute. DITA-aware processors would 
then use this attribute to determine which attributes are in fact 
metadata attributes, e.g.:

<p metadata-atts="foo bar"
   foo="a metadata value"
   bar="another metadata value"
   fred="not a metadata attribute">
