If an eventual standardisation is envisaged of such parameters, and a browser
is intending to experiment with a new "parameter", they will just pick an
attribute that has not been used yet by the standards and other browsers and
propose that in preparation for standardisation. For JavaScript developers, the
data-* attributes are sufficient for experimentation and demonstration of a use
case prior to proposing it for standardisation.

BTW: you seem to believe that <object> is deprecated. That is not the case, I
just wanted to make that clear. You can continue to use <object> with a browser
plugin, even for any needs where you have special audio and video requirements.
