Can I control what happens to attributes in conref-ed elements ?

When I conref an element, the attributes - excepting id and conref of course - are copied from the source to the reference element. This also happens when updating the conrefs. Is there a way to control this behavior, i.e. suppress it for specific elements ?

You can create the attribute on the referencing element - that will override the values on the target. But that may/may not be useful depending on your use case.

Can you give me an example of why/when you want to do this?
