If the Drawable's supports(AttributeFunctor&) returns true, you can write a subclass of AttributeFunctor to access the texture coordinates. ShapeDrawable's supports(ConstAttributeFunctor) returns true, so if you have ShapeDrawables you could use that.

Something like (untested):

class GetTextureCoords : public osg::Drawable::ConstAttributeFunctor
    void apply(AttributeType type, unsigned int count, const GLbyte* coords)
       if (type != TEXTURE_COORDS)
       // coords contains texture coordinates here
    // ... other apply() functions ...
