Well, this is my final word on the subject, it's my opinion, and by
the looks of it, only my opinion, but I *personally* don't see the
need for changing what we have.
I believe that all use cases are currently covered by the W3C spec.I
think IMHO that adding 'shorthand' functions, for functionality that
already exists, and restricting that functionality adds a barrier of
entry to a new developer, and produces a messy outcome.
For instance, if you had a 'branding' image for your web sites, and
it is always 100px x 100px, that is not good for you to have a new
attribute on the <img> tag for 'branding', so that the image is
always rendered 100x100, nor is it good to have a new tag <imgbrand>
that renders the src as 100x100. You simply use the existing <img>
tag and modify it to your specific case.
Again, that is *only my opinion*, and final word on the subject.
