The Problem in HTML5 is, you don't have any option to allow translation 
of attributes. We can use rules, but this doesn't exists in HTML5. Thats 
why they using this behavior, I think.
And to say some attributes are considered to be translatable and others 
not, would be very confusing. Specially what are you doing with data-* 
attributes - are they are translatable or not? Thats why I think they 
considered everything as translatable and the translation software 
should handle this. I know it makes NO sense to translate the class 
attribute :)
