David,

  When standard appends new attribute into tag,
UA can ignore it without fail of work.
  When standard appends new attribute into css,
also UA can ignore it without fail of work.
  Old (known) attributes in tags are saved in both cases.
Old (known) attributes can be withdrawn from tags also in both cases
(deleted in first case and moved in last case).

  You are expecting, that if my proposal will become standard,
authors of sites will make some attributes invisible for current UA
by moving them into css, will harm to themselves ?
They can make this even now, today !!
And really they will move, when this motion will not withdrawal.
I.e. when new UA will appear.

Excuse me, explain, how "unnecessary to keep separation in brain"
is "disadvantage".

Translate me, please, your complex english :)

What is common between definition of my term and
inability to parse html-file without css-file ?

I wanted to say, that author itself will distribute characteristics
(attributes-properties) into .htm and .css , dependently of
particularity of his (unique) site.
