IAM Project Rules based on Node Attribute

Currently in Chef Automate the following options are available to match with for nodes to match to a project:

Chef Organization, Chef Server, Environment, Chef Role, Chef Tag, Chef Policy Name, Chef Policy Group


It would be helpful to be able to add rules filtering for attributes as well to allow for greater flexibility, particularly in environments that are using a role-cookbook deployment model or want to additionally segment project ownership to more discreet application groups within an organization.
