Well, since the extension attributes are specific to the PDF renderer, I think
it is not a blocker to treat them as plain 'foreign attributes' at parse-time.
One case comes to mind where we would need to treat them as genuine
'properties': suppose we want to be able to specify them as expressions, based
on other properties.
