Yes, exactly that. Some browsers implement it and its an obvious fit.
Anne pointed out its not specced anywhere. So I wanted it to be
specced.

SVG has always allowed intermixed data (at the time it was designed,
by using elements and attributes in non-SVG namespsces, exposed
through the DOM). data-* is the HTML5 way and SVG2 aligns with HTML5
thus SVG2 must allow data-* attrs in SVG and let people get at them,
just like they do in HTML.
