This method looks for a DefaultValueAttribute. If it finds one, it compares the value of the attribute with the current value of the property. It returns true when the default value does not match the current value of the property. If this method cannot find a DefaultValueAttribute, it looks for a ShouldSerializeMyProperty method. If it finds a ShouldSerializeMyProperty method, it returns what ShouldSerializeMyProperty returns. If this method cannot find a ShouldSerializeMyProperty method, it looks for a ResetMyProperty method. If it finds a ResetMyProperty method, it returns true. If this method cannot find a DefaultValueAttribute, a ShouldSerializeMyProperty method, or a ResetMyProperty method, then it returns false.
