In the XML representation, a distinction is drawn between properties 
and attributes. ALTREP and LANGUAGE are attributes, LOCATION is a 
property.  A component can have properties, and properties can have 
attributes.  This is a little confusing, because what RFC 2445 calls 
"property parameters" are called "attributes" in the XML 
representation.

At least that's my reading of it, and the way I've been implementing 
it in Sosigenes.
