Subject: DocBook 5: Naming convention of db.href.attribute


I am not sure, but I think I found an inconsistency in the naming of 
a "db." pattern. Maybe the DocBook experts can explain this if this can 
considered as a bug. :)

The "Transition Guide"[1] says in "Pattern Names":

   Combinations of attributes, for example, 
   db.effectivity.attributes, which contains the attributes
   arch, condition, conformance, etc.

However, in DocBook 5.0CR3 I found this:

db.href.attribute =
  & db.xlink.type.attribute?
  & db.xlink.role.attribute?
  & db.xlink.arcrole.attribute?
  & db.xlink.title.attribute?
  & db.xlink.show.attribute?
  & db.xlink.actuate.attribute?

Shouldn't it be named db.href.attributes (plural)?
