HTML5 has a list of attributes enabled for all tags in global-scope, of which title, class, contextmenu etc., are present.

I guess the attribute xmlns is a typo-mistake, where in css-class is expected to be there. Else, it could be an attempt to adhere with XPath too. Check your application environment if there are any scripts to traverse all nodes in XML based docs.

Subject: [VE][html5] internal error from xmlns=""

My document contain this element
<ul id="mainMenu" class="menulevel1 sf-menu" xmlns="">
which clearly has an invalid xmlns attribute.

The validator stumbled when it saw the rotten attribute with the error "A bug manifested itself in the application internals. Unable to continue"

You need a validation error message to cover it.
