Attributes, on these definitions, make no difference. But of course you are
perfectly entitled to define "empty" as meaning "has no attributes", if
that's what you want to test for.

PS, please tell your legal department to stop adding this junk to your mail.
I haven't read it, and I hereby give notice that I regard it as having no
legal effect. And the same applies to everyone else.
