Again, that's your choice.

Well, you don't. You need to define what content you want to protect, and it's up to you to define what that content does. Models for application integration are discussed in the wiki.

I would add that the specific use case of "verify those attributes" is covered by a new feaure in the SP.

See "Post-Login Hooks and Attribute Checking". I'll eventually get material about this with clearer examples in place.
