I agree with your opinion (that locals should be there, after all I'm
one of the two +1s), but disagree with the conclusion that this is
going to happen.  2 +1s is simply not enough to make a vote pass.

I'm not trying to argue from a procedural standpoint but merely from
the fact that a change like this needs community support - and it
doesn't seem to have it.

-0.8

most if not all things that could be done when we implement the
attributes as local properties are possible with textual expansion.
Textual expansion enables things that local properties don't.

-1 on both.  Both parts lack committer support.  We could try to
revote or something.
