Could you show a few more examples? Also, what would the per-tag  
attributes be and what are the meaning? I'm not sure what the audio  
hack is.

Instead of "upperCase", might it make sense to call that  
"interfaceName" for cases where the interface is not the obvious thing  
derived from the tag name? "Anchor" isn't really an uppercase version  
of "a", and for h1-h6 all of them would have Header in the interface  
name, but it's not really an uppercase version. Might it make sense to  
even say interface=HTMLAnchorElement?
