I'd like to be able to get the attributes without having to instantiate the base type because that is problematic and I see no reason why it has to be instantiated to get CT values.

Could you provide a full example for this issue and for your other message? That makes it easier to help you

enum attr;

struct Foo
{
    @attr int a;
}

void main()
{
    alias a = __traits(getAttributes, Foo.a);
}
