They have potential if you want to annoy your fellow-players, but I'm not keen on introducing more of that into the game.
(And while Short Attention Span might be only a ten-pointer in a dungeon bash, it would be crippling in any game that needs surveillance, or watch-standing, or extended academic work.)
I suspect I have the Attentive perk; I get absorbed in things, which produces good results, but I fail to notice interruptions. However, this means that features of modern GUIs that seem to be intended to amuse people with shorter attention spans are amazingly annoying and have to be turned off.
