There is no "[attribute]" property of an element information item; the property
is "[attributes]".  The value of [attributes] is a set of attribute information
items, unordered and each identified by [namespace name] and [local name].  We
use the phrase "the xxx:yyy [attribute]" to mean that attribute information
item  in [attributes] whose [namespace name] is linked to the prefix "xxx" and
whose [local name] is "yyy".

I don't think it is necessary to abuse the bracket notation by using
"[attribute]".  I suggest we simply say "the xxx:yyy attribute"; everyone will
