Eventually, this should be solved with a reference, since we want
attr() to be allowed on all properties, not just 'mark-before'. The
Speech module (like most other modules) depends on the Values and
Units Module and that latter module explains that attr(x) or
attr(x,type,default) is allowed on all properties to replace a string
value or a value of the given type.

This avoids that we have to add 'attr()' to all the property
definitions. Ditto for the special keywords 'inherit' and 'initial'.

(But the Values and Units Module should preferrably be a Candidate
Recommendation, before we make a dependency on it.)
