Hi Richard,

Above states correctly that schemas take precedence over spec text.

We had decided to remove these slot attributes. They were removed from 
schema and their sections were removed from spec. Unfortunately, what 
was left by accident is the row in the attribute summary table in 2 or 3 
classes. This is a minor spec issue that has no impact on 
implementations or interop. Please file an apprpriate public comment. 

I am glad we had the text you quoted in the spec for times like this.
