The GObject API currently does not provide attributes.

Would the GLib team be receptive to changes to support gobject attributes?

I don't think so. Attributes are considered metadata.
It's GObject-Introspection's job to deal with object

Isn't GObject-Introspection's focus narrower than providing metadata?
Reading around the subject, it seems it's to provide metadata for public
API/shared libraries to enable auto-generated bindings.

Given this, it would seem unlikely GObject-Introspection will support
executables or namespaces, both of which would be needed for a full
introspection API for Vala.
