I didn't miss that method that much. You could always get the document with:

Document doc = null;
Element e = attr.getParent();
if(e != null) doc = e.getDocument();

I hope that your addition of getDocument() to Attribute was implemented in
similar fashion, and that you didn't actually add a private Document field
to Attribute.
