    That sounds good.

    But I'm still not sure what's the advantage of the attribute API on
    top of regular, type-safe, dedicated API for every attribute: it
    doesn't sound like there's a vast number of attributes, only a
    handful, and dedicated API just sound (to me) much more readable and
    less prone to error.

    But, again, maybe it's only me :)
