You can.  It is just "SetAttribute" method takes care of the fact that a specific NetDevice may not be PointToPointNetDevice and also not requires you to include point-to-point-net-device.h header file.   But again, you absolutely can do the dynamic cast, just make sure that the return value is not null (e.g., it is indeed PointToPointNetDevice-derived class).
