Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale:  

There's 645 occurrences of "IDL attribute". I'm not xreffing it. That's a
non-starter.

The term is defined in the first occurrence of the term after the table of
contents, in the very first paragraph of the terminology section. That's
basically required reading for anyone reading the spec. If anyone is reading it
without first at least skimming the terminology section, it's not surprising
that the spec won't make much sense.

Marking the IDL boxes as IDL isn't a bad idea though. And I rather like the
style zcorpan came up with. Done.
