In some degree.
But incremental rendering is already breaked by downloading
pictures and css-file after downloading html-document itself, right?

Maybe "attributes of first type" ?

What's about (1), sometimes it's needed to use properties as
presentational attributes, i.e. it's needed to write:
  <... style="presentational_attribute: value">
And i propose to allow to specify attributes and properties
on equal rights in tag and in css:
  <p color="red">
  p[color="red"] {...}
  table          {cellspacing:0}
