Thanks Lukas.

I know (at some point) people were holding out for traits to solve  
this, but it seems like a lot of these helpers could simply be pushed  
up to WATagBrush. Things like name, value, type, etc. all fall under  
the category of "common attribute helpers" that several (but not all)  
tags need.

The protocols wouldn't be as clearly documented for each individual  
tag, but personally I'd rather take the tradeoff if we could reduce  
code duplication.
