I don't think you can "base" on attribute on another in the new
attribute architecture - however, an attribute set can inherit an
attribute from another set and use additional qualifiers (functional and
semantic) on that attribute.

I think Rob is thinking more of RDF et al. where you can indicate that
an element is a derivative (in some way) of another...
