I think this should be the starting point: what are the goals for all this?
Providing a formal description in EBNF is one thing. Preparing an attribute
grammar for input into a specific tool is another (and probably an order of
magnitude - or two - harder) - what would the resulting parser(s) be used for?

Clear(er) answers to these questions should go a long way towards figuring out
what specific tool(s) should be used - or whether it's at all necessary to
worry about that.
