For the attitudes, it might be more useful to come up with the declinations and
define what situations they're used in.  Also, why mark emotional "attitudes" on
nouns?  You don't necessarily need an answer, I'd just think it would be more
likely marked on verbs or the whole sentence (I don't have data on that,

Also, I would have gone with your original idea and used noun classes for the
"purposes" (and maybe added interest with a few arbitrary assignments), but
inflections could work.
