I'm sure Matthew or Rob will shout if I misunderstood their dialogue,
but I took it to mean that (A) the mechanism described by the proposal
does explicitly offer CQL profilers the wherewithal to invent
completely new attribute types, and quite right too; but (B) if
profilers really, really want to, then the mechanism is sufficiently
flexible to make it possible for them to cheat (and quite right too).

for member objects. Destructors for nonstatic member
objects are executed before the destructors for base classes.
Destructors for nonvirtual base classes are executed before
destructors for virtual base classes. Destructors for
nonvirtual base classes are executed in reverse order of
their declaration in the derived class. Destructors for
virtual base classes are executed in the reverse order of
their appearance in a depth-first left-to-right traversal of
the directed acyclic graph of base classes; ``left-to-right''
is the order of appearance of the base class names in the
declaration of the derived class." -- the C++ reference
