This one has to be enabled in config.php:

   $PageAttrFmt = 'page:Site.AttrForm';

Then create the page [[Site.AttrForm]] to place whatever text you need 
above the attribute form fields.

This will appear on the attr form for all pages, not only 
GroupAttributes, but you could use a conditional markup to restrict it:

(:if name GroupAttributes:)...(:else:)...(:ifend:)

If you absolutely must remove form fields, you need to create your own 
function in config.php for this. Best would be to base it on 
PrintAttrForm() with a different name, then follow the instructions 


I wouldn't do it, if your editors can be trusted to read the message you 
placed above the form and follow it. If they cannot be trusted, simply 
don't give them "attr" permissions (see Passwords and PasswordsAdmin).


P.S. There is a recipe 
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/CustomAttrForm that appears to use 
the first solution -- not sure if it will help you (haven't reviewed
