Nope. Loading AI files is completely different from using PSDs. There is no way to access the text.

There is no way to access the text.
Not completely true...
Yes, once the Illustrator text is converted to outlines (vector art) inside Illustrator, you can't change it...BUT...if you create text in Illustrator and leave it editable, you can still get to it & change it from AE by selecting the layer in the AE timeline and hitting Command/E (Mac) which means "Edit Original" and will launch Illustrator & show you that text. Save it out and it automatically updates in AE when you click in the Composition Window. If you must create outlines, save out a second file and convert THAT to outlines - leaving one file editable at all times.
That's what I would do.
Yes, of course. But I guess the original question was relating to native text layers ("text effects") after all. ;-)
