Setting component attributes through viewhandler

We need to tag each component in a view with a specific attribute.
We are not allowed to inherit and customize the encoding of the components through custom renderer.
Is it possible to tag the components in the tree ,through a custom viewhandler or phaselistener, prior to the rendering?
We find that the phaselistener can get the entire component tree only after the RENDER_RESPONSE phase.
Is ther any other way of achieving this objective?

It's been a long while since you added this post, but I've come up against the same problem and was wondering if you found a solution?
