"Based on origin" doesn't help, as we're wanting to defend against CSS injection, which makes the CSS first-party.

It's *probably* okay to allow most built-in HTML attributes to be used.  Sensitive attributes need to be blocked *in general* (from Selectors, too), but the rest are likely okay to expose by default, like `href` in your example.  But I think we still have to block data-* by default, and allowlist them in.
