src: assert when setting unknown attributes
If this attribute is not supported by the library, we should rise an assertion so the client knows something is wrong, instead of silently going through. The only case I can think may hit this problem is version mismatch between library and tools. This should not ever really happen, so better bail out from the library itself in this case.
