Problem Description:

When running code analyzer, it will come back with an incorrect error for <cfcollection> when the "path" attribute is absent".

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Run code analyzer against code with <cfcollection> in it.
2. View report

Actual Result:

"ColdFusion 2016 has modified the usage of CFCollection tag. The attribute path is now a required attribute"

Expected Result:

Documentation, in the history section, at states:

"ColdFusion 2016: The path attribute is ignored." and "Note: Starting with ColdFusion 2016, the path attribute will be ignored. All the collections will be created in the collections directory at the location specified in Solr_Home field in the ColdFusion administrator page."
