Yes, unfortunately not all target maintainers have carefully added 
testcases and documentation for their attributes - and testcases are 
really a matter for the target maintainers as they know what the semantics 
should be and not merely what the attribute handler does which I attempted 
to make bug-compatible with the old attribute handlers when overhauling 
attribute handling some years ago.
