I got an answer on IRC from Ken Gaillot. Bellow his answer for tracking purpose.

  That issue has come up recently in a different context. you are
  correct, currently there is no guarantee that the value has been set
  anywhere, and looping until the query comes back ensures that the new value
  is in the local attrd only.

  The solution will probably be to offer something like a --wait option that
  doesn't return until the value is available (maybe locally, maybe everywhere,
  or maybe that's part of the option).

I'll fill a bz for tracking purpose of such feature as discussed on IRC.

Any suggestion is very welcome...
