It's sometimes necessary to select attributes, for example to declare them translatable or untranslatable (it's bad practice to have translatable attributes, but HTML has a few of them anyway).

Selectors don't provide a way to do that - the attribute selectors described in the Selectors spec enable selection of elements by the values of their attributes, but not selection of the attributes themselves. When using Selectors in ITS, how would one select attributes?
