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.
