  I like the idea, when I have a small set of attributes, used in a lot
of places.  And easily configurable in a XSLT configuration document. 
Indeed, using templates instead of attribute sets in such a
configuration file is not so far away.

  Yes, you're right.  Actually, the only point I see in favour of the
attribute sets is that we know we can use attributes (but only
attributes) within them.  Within a template, we have to check it's
designed for (i.e. called just after opening an element).
