David Radley commented on ATLAS-1175:
-------------------------------------

If you allow the removal of optional attributes, then you effect instances 
based on the old type that contain the attribute. I know this is a json so 
maybe we tolerate extra attributes in the json object that do not match the 
type, but I think this would be misleading. I think that this use case should 
be considered in ATLAS-1174.
