in relation to the question: http://forum.plantuml.net/7700/apply-css-style-classes-to-component-and-interfaces

could we do a simple thing?

@startuml

component A as A {

}

component B as B {

}

A -[class=ClassA ClassB]-> B: test

@enduml

So, that in the SVG the ClassA and ClassB would be passed to the related path element as

<path class="ClassA ClassB" ...

?

having the ability to define classes for interfaces and components will allow such thing as dynamic highlighting the desired elements on svg diagrams using javascript

I made a framework for animating SVG diagrams from data obtained via a REST query. This uses class to define the object type to be animated and other attributes to specify data to that class such as its partial path in a tree structure, the rest being derived from its nesting with other objects. So, this leads on to the request that we should have, not just class but any attribute name.

A -[alias="somePath\",class=ClassA ClassB]-> B:test
