I have a doubt with GET ATTRIBUTES operation. Please help me

Will GET ATTRIBUTES operation returns NAME attribute when
queried? I have checked with IBM, HP and Cryptsoft servers, all are not
returning NAME attribute though request specifies NAME attribute in it.

Names are required to be unique
within a key management domain (see Section
3.2 in the spec), a conflict
between two Templates (i.e., two Templates
having the same Name(s)) is
