No, and I don't think there's much value in this.  With the caching 
mechanism (that we will eventually get fully implemented) the scenario 
that you are describing will only require an actual IdentityStore lookup 
on the first call; subsequent hasRole() calls will be already pre-cached 
for maximum performance.
