By "superfluous", do you mean "redundant" or "not making sense in the context"?
 This is an important distinction to consider.

Not sure what you mean by that....

What particular "other attributes" are you talking about?

Thinking about it now, variables can't be overridden, and so essentially are
already final.  Banning them from being declared final might be considered
silly on this basis.  So final on member variables is redundant, as opposed to
(for example) __gshared on functions which doesn't make sense.
