Alp's suggestion needs some refinement -- the standard attributes (other
than 'deprecated') can't take arguments at all (not even empty
parentheses), so we'll presumably need some way to encode that in the .td
file if we want to move away from the hardcoded list.

It's already there and working -- this patch is only adding support for
doing something with the attribute's argument.
