There is also a legacy (and much more commonly used) syntax using the Local or Global prefixes (see legacy_attr).
Is the legacy syntax also scheduled for removal?
I have no real argument against, but I'm sticking to the old one out of aesthetic reasons, and a colleague would prefer switching to the new one....
No @Paolo Giarrusso, the legacy attribute syntax is not scheduled for removal (at least for now). At the moment, the important difference is that new attributes will only be provided using the new mechanism and the legacy attributes won't be extended.
Maybe we should write that down in the refman.
