A principal can use AttributeQuery to self-query for attributes.  See,
for example, section 4 of this deployment profile:


Scott is suggesting to use AuthnRequest instead of AttributeQuery,
since AuthnRequest is much richer.  All that's needed is an extension
so the requester can ask for a specific set of attributes.  Then
AuthnRequest will be able to do everything that AttributeQuery can do,
and much more.

Hope that helps,
