---------------------------------------------------------------------

updating a type by removing optional attributes doesn't affect entities based 
on the old type, the schema of the type is changed and the value of the removed 
attribute still exists in titan db for older entities, but its not surfaced in 
REST API and UI. 

when you create a new entity and include value for removed attribute, it will 
be ignored by atlas and the attribute value will not be stored in titan.
