I tried to use the document token in simulator to read a driver
attribute (DirXML-ConfigManifest) the contents of which are an object in
Designer (the Driver Manifest tab in driver properties).

Designer is capable of mapping this object to an attribute on
deploy/compare, but it can't seem to understand that this attribute
exists in the local designer model when using simulator.

The document token works just fine in simulator if the object is a
visible object within the designer project (like a mapping table) but it
doesn't work for attributes (which are specified by the # delimiter)

Anyone able to suggest workaround?
