[Voted into the WP at the November, 2010 meeting as part of paper N3190.

Date: 2010-10-15.00:00:00

Proposed resolution (October, 2010):

  1. Replace every occurrence of attribute-specifier with attribute-specifier-seq except in 9.12.1 [dcl.attr.grammar] paragraphs 1, 3, and 6 (but including paragraph 4).

  2. Insert the following production at the beginning of the grammar of 9.12.1 [dcl.attr.grammar] paragraph 1:

    • attribute-specifier-seq:
        attribute-specifier-seqopt attribute-specifier
Date: 2009-10-05.00:00:00

The current syntax requires that multiple attributes that appertain to the same entity be grouped into a single attribute-specifier. The migration from existing vendor-specific attributes would be easier if the syntax allowed multiple attribute-specifiers at each location where an attribute-specifier currently appears.
