Yeah, it was a conscience decision in 1.1.  onclick wasn't exposed
to prevent users from overwriting the generated onclick from the renderer.

This was resolved in 1.2 by wrapping the user specified content and invoking

It's best to treat the TLD docs the same as signature tests.  Exposing 
the attribute
when not defined in the TLD docs breaks portability between implementations.

Yep, they do.  I'm pretty sure though, the renderer doesn't call call 
those methods (at least
in the 1.1 RI).
