Yes I think it makes a lot of sense to not load all attributes by default. IIRC in 1.x nothing beyond uid/cn is loaded during simpler operations like membership resolution and this came from both perf profiling and user/customers complains. 

+1 for configuring minimum set of attributes and then load all the rest on dedicated query.
