slightly related. What about foreign attributes.
I haven't found in the document the handling rules for unknown  

A group with a need of specific attribute might want to add new  
attributes to Web Apps 1.0.
- What are the extensions mechanims for this?
- What will the behaviour of the Web Apps 1.0 user agent?

I'm thinking of groups of attributes

     - International Tags Set
     - RDFa (about, property, etc.)
     - Accessibility (role)
