Question: What happens if I change the data type of on attribute ?

Background:
I wrote the CompressFrame which uses a StringArray as an argument,
which should be an array of MimeType's (e.g. the "mime-type" argument,
which lists the type of outgoing mimetypes which should be compressed
(I've choosed text/* for CompressFilter as the default, which should cover
the most common things)).

What happens if I change this silently from StringArrayAttribute to
MimeTypeArrayAttribute inside the code ?

Bye,
Roland
