Fixed Extra attributes on navigation type "node" missing

Affected version
2.2 RC1
Any specific reason why we can't set extra attributes on node navigation types? I'm aware I can target it using CSS but there are some scenarios where it'd be beneficial to use those options.
It has always been the case since 2.0 because the navigation type itself controls what configuration options it has and additional properties on node links shouldn’t be required because the node type should set all of the attributes that make sense.

What are the specific scenarios where it would be beneficial?
Really the styling aspect of it is nice, referring customers to put "style || color: red;" vs explaining how to find the class on the navigation link.
Ability to open in a new window if we'd want

Just some off the top of my head. It's nothing major but it would be nice for the sake of consistency.
Thank you for reporting this issue, it has now been resolved. We are aiming to include any changes that have been made in a future XF release (2.2.0 RC3).

Change log:
Add extra attributes to the node navigation type and add support for other types to opt-in to this more easily.
There may be a delay before changes are rolled out to the XenForo Community.
