Here's at least one good use-case where expanding the number of available
attributes on HTML elements would be helped, as I request and as you asked
for use-case. Maybe even beyond the attribute names I suggested in order to
give some better semantics for alternate use cases like Elias'.  Maybe also
add "property" and "attribute" attributes to all HTML elements.  Elias, do
you have any suggestions?
