If you want to return a static list you should use a method. A method is  
expected to be able to return something new if you invoke it later. An  
attribute generally returns the same thing over time. (This is the pattern  
we try to follow.)

Although I don't have conclusive data, my impression is that developers  
prefer static lists. You might be able to get more feedback on this by  
emailing public-webapps@w3.org.
