Additional attributes on type definition

I would like to add additional attributes to the type definition and map those to properties of my concrete object. In the example below I would like the value of the "connectionName" attribute to be injected into MySqlDataStore.ConnectionName. I have a working PoC using a ContainerExtension and BuilderStrategy, but it requires my own configuration block which I would like to avoid. Is this a feature that makes sense to include in a future release?




In my PoC, I modify Unity.Configuration.UnityTypeElement to override ConfigurationElement.OnDeserializeUnrecognizedAttribute and put all unrecognized attributes into a NameValueCollection that I can then access in my BuilderStrategy and map to properties of MySqlDataStore using reflection.
