I think that this is the right design for now, given the constraints of the current cred API; however, it's certainly possible we could think up an extension to the cred API that would make this case easier to deal with.  It also leaves open some not-quite-trivial questions like "how do you know when to expire the cache, which are usually easy to work out for a particular application but do not generalize easily.

I hope you don't give up on thinking about a nicer and more general API just because the immediate problem is solved :).  Glad I could offer useful advice, though.
