No, I have pointed to http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#extensibility 
which tells you how to extend in a standard way. You're trying to introduce
another means of extensibility which is simply not necessary.
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#extensibility in particular mentions
that you can do proprietary attributes by using "x-*" named attributes. So, why
don't you just use "x-param" if that's what you need?

Incidentally, anything that is just implemented and implementable by a subpart
of browsers is proprietary. The kind of DRM schemes that you are thinking about
probably rely on having closed source code and therefore cannot be implemented
for example in Firefox. Thus, it's proprietary.
