Once an attribute is persisted, it will stay in localstore.rdf, even after it
has been removed from the element's persist list.  This may cause strange
behaviour for an upgraded module.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
How do you tell the difference between persistence saved by a subsequently
removed persist attribute and persistence saved via document.persist on an
element which has never had a persist attribute?
I think there should be a way for program to remove a previously persisted
attribute value, if we can't automatically remove it.
