The syntax is no different of one having a regular attribute which
passes a name of a property. So I see no reason to add a special 
syntax for it. Not that it is imposible, but I do not see the need.

We could add some syntax sugar like $@{var} - @${var} or something else
but I really do not see the need as the notation just needs 1 min
of explaining in the <macrodef/> page.
