If you think it is valuable having it nearby (e.g. when inspecting the
definition of the attribute in a call site), then it is fine having
them -- I am all for documentation (and we could consider having a
small summary/one-liner for all attributes). But, in general, I would
avoid repeating all the compiler docs (or, if needed, we could fix
those upstream if they are not clear etc.).
