This is not a bug, it's a feature.  :)  If you look closely at the
dictionary, you will see it contains empty lists for all these items.
These empty lists are the DataSkins.NOT_FOUND singleton, which caches the
nonexistence of these attributes.  This is not a security problem, nor any
other kind of problem.  It is instead a performance optimization which
keeps the DataSkin from querying all the AttributeProviders every time a
known-to-be-nonexistent attribute is looked for.
