That is a fair point, and a small amount of authoring advice to add
attributeType="xml" to avoid inadvertant clashes with future CSS
properties seems like a good idea.

This might be added in the spec itself, perhaps before CR if we get
time, or added in an authoring guidelines document.

I think that would just generate follow-on comments to define "relevant"
and "directly observable behaviour" in great detail.
