   But sgml-basic-offset defaults to 2, not 3, so it doesn't
   make much sense that the attribute is indented by 3 spaces.

Another way to look at it is that the attribute name is indented
2 spaces with respect to the element name, so things are working
as designed.

Maybe a better approach would be to introduce a variable that
controls the ‘1+’ such that indentation-wrt-element-name (status
quo) remains as is doesn't ruffle the feathers of long-time
users, yet indentation-wrt-element-angle-brace is available for
those (including yourself) who prefer it.

In this way, we can avoid another post in N years saying that
lack of ‘1+’ "doesn't make much sense", its accompanying patch,
and some of the circular discussion that would ensue.
