Well, the static attribute definition since Feb 2010 and the simple
attribute definition hasn't changed since Dec 2007.

Attribute definitions create IdP attributes with an ID that matches
the ID of the attribute definition.  So your attribute definition says
"Create an attribute whose ID is 'MyStaticAttribute' and use the
values of the attribute called 'MyStaticAttribute' as the source of
values for this new attribute.".  I have no idea what that will do.
Probably give you an attribute with no values.
