Now, in EA 15, it has become easier to link to attributes (as well as other element features).
However, we really need important support for these feature-level connectors in more ways, e.g.
  • Show relationships for a given attribute
  • Show traceability for a given attribute
  • Insert related elements for a given attribute
  • Show traceability for a given attribute
  • Option on diagrams to hide all feature-level connectors - without this option, diagrams are really easily becoming cluttered with a mess of connectors - and it is not realistic to manually hide these  --  (possible criteria nuance: one or both ends at feature-level)

Gets my vote.  The feature-based options are good, but as Svend says, come at a price.
