Have you considered the opportunity to store in the AST attribute also
the attribute arguments expressions?

This, together with the insertion of a generic attribute would permit to
add arbitrary annotations to source code to be used by analysis client
and other clients.

The reason to have a regular expression AST for argument has two benefits:

1) the possibility to know the original syntactic form

2) the resolution of identifiers in the exact scope where they appeared
