I'm sorry I don't know the change tracking enough to provide illustrations.
At least in Kotext, it is quite complicated, far from separate from normal 
serialization. Looking at the code is hardly enough to understand what is change 
related and what is not...

Also, another question about your proposal : would it be strict regarding the 
content types ?
I mean : a positiveInteger attribute for a given node must remain a 
positiveInteger, and that could even be checked at compilation time...
