Inventive patent attorneys

The rules for inventorship vary across jurisdictions.  In the US, contribution to a single claim makes a person an inventor.

So the question is how often do clever patent attorneys, who ask interesting questions about variations and broadening aspects of the invention disclosed to them, end up accorded inventorship status?

Should they?

Is there an invalidity / unenforceability risk here?
