Hmm. I'll be honest, I personally really dislike these macros.
They absolutely don't help with readability because they obscure
the connection between the attributes being created and their callbacks.
Short is not the same as more readable.

Dropping off the prefixes from function names suddenly makes them
appear a lot more generic than they are. The only advantage is is
standardizes their naming slightly - but that could be done whilst
maintaining the more readable version that makes everything obvious.

I'll think on whether the compactness gains are sufficient to justify their
use.
