Not to be anal, but this statement is wrong. There is NOTHING wrong with
using Attributes as the name of the scope OUTSIDE of the possible
confusion it could cause if you didn't know you weren't looking at a
custom tag. As a teacher, I would recommend against using Attributes as
the name of a scope, but _only_ for that reason, and I wouldn't even
strongly recommend against it.
