That's because AttributeQuery is meant to be used in conjunction with
a synchronous binding such as SOAP. See section 6 of the SAML2
Profiles document.

That suggests that you might want to use AuthnRequest instead of
AttributeQuery. You could add requested attributes in the AuthnRequest
extensions element. This has been discussed before and I'd be
surprised if it hasn't already been done, but there is no public
profile AFAIK.
