I suggest that he look at adding both data-* and RDFa to section 7 (Core
Attributes):

http://dev.w3.org/html5/markup/common-attributes.html#common-attributes

The meta concern is usage and abuse of the standards process as a means to
"anoint" and advocate preferred extensions at the expense of others.  If there
is a selection criteria for what markup is to be included, that criteria needs
to be stated clearly up front.  It also would be helpful to clearly mark in the
document where the element or attribute in question is defined in cases where
this definition is not the HTML5 specification itself.
