Ok, in general you're right; but I'm wondering why for example we added
a special handling for suggestion lists which is rarely needed and seem
to refuse to add a more general approach which helps others as well.
Streaming out the attributes of the field definition should in no way
change the performance as the attributes are empty in most cases anyway.

I don't want to use ajax for this; i don't need a server request; I can
generate javascript which completly runs in the browser - which is much
faster and user friendly.
