                  Attribute definition is the primary mechanims via
                  which component meta can be extended. So if you need
                  to add a new
                  <a href="features.xml">Feature</a> to
                  a container that requires meta data from a component
                  then you need to extend the Meta Data model by
                  defining attributes. See the section on the
                  <a href="#process">Attribute Definition Process</a>
                  for details on how to define new attributes.

              <p>The current list of experimental attributes follows;</p>
                      <b>x-mx</b>: This is a set of attributes that declares
                      management attributes and operations for an object. By
                      interpreting these attributes the container can export
                      an object to a management system.

          <section name="Attribute Definition Process">
              <p>Anytime a group or individual wishes to define an attribute
              they need to produce a document defining the attribute and all
              it's parameters. At that stage it should be presented to the
              community for discussion.</p>
              <p>Once the initial document has been finalized and there is a
              container or tool that actually supports the attribute, a link
              to the document will be added to the list of Attribute works in
              <p>If after six months no changes have been required then the
              attribute is put to a majority vote by the community. If successful
              it will be placed on the list of stable attributes.</p>
