Discover spell cooldown

How can I know a spell's CD without having used it? For example some spells have defined CDs but thse can be modified eg with Vision of Perfection. For example Celestial Alignment on my Druid is 3 mins, but with Vision of Perfection it drops to 2.3 mins. How can I programmatically find out?

I don't think it's possible to check a spell's modified cooldown before casting it. Hope I'm wrong, though, for your sake. Depends on what you're trying to do, obviously, but you could store the cooldown values after casting them once?

There isn't a way short of tooltip scanning.

OK thanks guys. It is weird that there is no API for such important metrics. I also wanted to have an idea about a spell's damage, but that's also impossible.
