[tei-council] @dur seems to be unavailable

I'm sure I'm missing something obvious here, but I just generated a 
schema in the online Roma with core stuff + corpus + namesdates + 
textcrit, and I was expecting @dur to be available on <date> and <time>, 
but it's not.

If I do "change attributes" on <date>, @dur is not one of the options.

@dur is defined in att.duration.w3c.
att.duration is a member of att.duration.w3c.
<date> is a member of att.duration.

In addition, there's also a macroSpec called data.duration.w3c, which 
defines the datatype for W3C durations.

What am I missing here? I can't find any bug reports or FRs relating to
