As suggested by Axel in a private mail, this answer does not have any
sense, sorry.  In fact, %body is treated as a single entity, and i
currantly see no way to have it parsed as an array of attributes.

It seems fairly easy to add a new function, say <disjoin>, for doing
this job. Will send a patch soon (i.e. within 24 hours).
