DCD and Global attributes.

I think this is better handled by the use of inheritance.  I.e. you create a
base element that has all the attributes you wish to be "universal", and
derive all you elements from this base.  This re-uses a mechanism we want
anyway, and allows finer grain control than universal vs. one-at-a-time.
