Which attribute isn't specified, and where, and what's the code that can't be
modified?  It sounds more like it's the job of the advertisement service provider
to fix their markup.  If they don't, then your page shouldn't validate if it
includes their markup.  Letting bad markup through just because it "can't be
modified" for some external reason doesn't sound like a good idea to me.
