(I sincerely hope the correct answer is “Arle, the answer to this question is well-known to everyone with a brain, so you obviously lack one, and therefore please leave us alone about such things.”)

HTML5 spec doesn't contain any formal definition of content models
similar to XML schema, but validators are implemented on top of RELAX NG
validation, see: http://about.validator.nu/

Practically in order to customize validator.nu to support our ITS
attributes we (OK, *I*) will create one relatively straightforward RELAX
NG schema defining just its-* attributes and allowing them on any HTML
element.

Hope this makes you day better for your brain and body :-)
