I completely agree. People who use forms (they operate CGI scripts to collect 
the user input) already know what these HTML attributes do and how they are 
used. Our documentation could contain at most a one-line short list of the 
recognized attributes, and a link to a w3c reference page.

Those that are not standard HTML attributes (focus) could be described. 

If we want, we could also have some longer descriptions moved to the talk 
page, while keeping the main documentation clean and concise.
