Yes, via the $PageAttributes variable.  Simply define

   $PageAttribute['myattr'] = 'My Attribute: ';

and a new field will show up on the ?action=attr page that
allows the attribute to be set or changed.  If the attribute
name begins with 'passwd' then the attribute is treated as a
password field.

In addition, when page text variables/properties are more 
solidified in the core, there will be a way for administrators 
and recipes to specify that certain properties should be
saved as page attributes.  (Actually, there will be a "better way" --
one exists now, but it's a bit of a kludge.)

I don't know what is meant here.
