The nested attribute and the attributes within that nested attribute
live in two different attribute number namespaces.

So usually we allocate the nested attribute at the top level in the
main enumeration.  Then the elements within the nested attribute
get allocated with a new enumeration created specifically for items
inside that nested attribute.

For example, RTA_METRICS --> RTAX_*

So please arrange things this way.
