Oops! Wasn't paying attention!

Because the <cl> element is used for the |context| attribute, so
having an attribute of the same name as the choice list element would be

I included it to give people an understanding that the choice list
may be used for other purposes. I don't what to see features implemented

1.0. For instance, if I excluded the |context| attribute from this
discussion, what would be my argument for not renaming the |list|
attribute to |cl|?
