Nope. See <http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#attr-data>:

"Custom data attributes  are intended to store custom data private to 
the page or application, for which there are no more appropriate 
attributes or elements.

These attributes are not intended for use by software that is 
independent of the site that uses the attributes."
