A better solution would be to somehow copy the attributes returned
from the API calls, since removing the cache means that IsDefined
needs to construct all the attributes for a type on each invocation,
which is not very perf friendly.

+Actually, IsDefined shouldn't need to create any attribute instance,
+since it only has to check attribute types.
+In any case, I don't see how a copy of the attributes could be faster
+than the normal initialization process. It can't be just a flat copy,
+an attribute could have complex internal data structures the would
+also need to be copied.
