I use custom attributes all the time, debugging them in MSIE and then compiling
them into legitimate but unreadable HTML in order to get along with Firefox.  I
also make heavy use custom css attributes and would appreciate having the two
problems solved compatibly.  Here's a sample of my work that is fully
acceptable to MSIE, but that must be "compiled" for Firefox:

.cls-gray { 
        color: #809080; 
        nskin: skin-gray; 
        placement: source-line; 
        active: { font-variant: small-caps }
        }

............... 
<span class="cls-gray" nref="#termDefinition"
      style="placement: note">term&nbsp;definition</span>

Using the one-name-is-enough principle, this could easily be rewritten as

.u      { cls-gray: { 
                color: #809080; 
                nskin: skin-gray; 
                placement: source-line; 
                active: { font-variant: small-caps }
                }
        }

............... 
<span class="cls-gray" u.nref="#termDefinition"
      style="u.placement: note">term&nbsp;definition</span>
