Did you expect otherwise? :)
That's normally the prize for syntactic sugar...
I wouldn't be surprised if Attribute::Handlers is to be blamed for a big part of the delay.
Using attributes directly might speed up things, but it will still be considerably slower.
But when used in the context of debugging or similar speed wouldn't matter that much.
