A rule that targets http (specified by the "service" tag) may then inspect traffic that isn't on the traditional http ports, because snort knows that this host is running an HTTP service and on which port.

I'm using PRADS, since I have some sensitive devices on my network that choke on an NMAP scan... it's been working pretty well.

ahhh... ok... i wasn't sure if it was that or if "attributes" was being used 
generically to mean all or some of the snort.conf configuration options...
