Unfortunately, this is fairly implicit in the design.

Things like Catalyst::Plugin::Server::XMLRPC use additional  
attributes unknown to Catalyst, without requiring your controllers to  
inherit from a base class defining a "_parse_${custom_attr_name} 
_attr" method - and so this needs to be kept as-if for compatibility.

However, I'd certainly be fine with a patch to split this behavior  
out of Catalyst::Controller::_parse_attrs, so that you could  
trivially make a controller role or base class outside of Catalyst  
core which was 'strict' about unknown attributes.
