In what version of DocBook? In 5.0, it's just text:

      db:refpurpose [ "Specifies the format of the data" ]
   attribute format { text }?,

Well, if your stylesheet can copy the format attribute to the HTML
param, I think I prefer that for the common stuff, but I won't fuss
too much.

Could I persuade you to make a concrete proposal for the changes that
you'd like to see?

                                        Be seeing you,
