Grammar details

Dear colleagues! I wonder what you think about the addition which was made to this entry:
How far shall we go with providing grammar details? For those among you who understand German: Please join the discussion in the EN-DE forum.

I've explained this in emails with you:

In "The red balloon" the adjective red is an attributive adjective.

The same is true with this word.  The examples you brought up only confirm that it is an attributive adjective.

The "prime" number.  Prime is attributive to number.  
The "prime" location. Prime is attributive to location.

Hope this helps,
[attr.] is a valid addition now  #524368

It has been discussed and decided in the DE-EN forum that, in certain cases only, such an addition shall be added, and this new rule has been incorporated in the guidelines (No. 9).
4; Razorflame: I did not argue that 'prime' was not an attributive adjective. Of course it is. My question was whether providing such explicit grammar details was really necessary, or just confusing. You have got your point.
