Custom attributes in SDF files

Is it possible to add custom attributes to SDF elements other than plugins? For example should I be able to do:


and then be able to access my_random_thing from the SDF element associated with my model? I know this works for plugins, but I can't get it to work for models.

If you use ROS with your system you can save "your random thing" on rosparam server to access it from nodes and plugins.

Reading the specification, I'd say it's not possible.

You can do this for plugins due to the copy_data element, which is not part of the model spec.
