Put them under 'attributes' and they will be added as such in 
the resulting html code:

      - type: Text
        name: subject
        label_loc: Subject
          title: page subject
          placeholder: type here the page subject

Note, I'm not sure how *_loc is handled with 'extra' attributes, 
so either read the code to see if *_loc is supported, or just do 
simple testing first and build from there.

Second note, attributes_xml means the attribute values will not 
be encoded (which allows you to embed pre-encoded entities, etc) 
and looking at your example you just want 'attributes' instead.
