I agree - those elements don't allow sub-elements (from the same or other
namespaces), so why should they allow attributes?
Note that point #2 only applies to the show, status, priority, body, subject
elements (not message/presence/iq).  Nothing is stopping you from creating
'sibling' elements to these in the same stanza with whatever element and
attributes you want.
