+I am aware of this problem (this is what is causing the various
+problems with the assembly attributes).  The problem is that changing
+the grammar will lead to incorrectly applied attributes currently, or
+will lead to many reduce/reduce errors.
+The right fix is to rewrite chunks of the attribute-application code,
+to actually allow for the code to know where to apply the bits.
+You can try the various effects by changing the rules as you described
+and re-running the couple of tests we have for attributes in the test
+suite, that will shed some light into the problem.
