had to read that several times to figure out what you're trying to say.  all
those negatives threw me for a bit.  we're in agreement though.  if they're
going to use attributes outside of a custom tag, they should be creating an
attributes structure first.

nope.  my issue is with advocating the scoping of variables then advocating
the creation of dotted variables that look scoped but aren't because there's
no attributes scope outside of custom tags and the confusion this causes
with coldfusion programmers.
