It is valid HTML5, but epub requires XHTML 1.1 and it is *not* valid there.

That does not appear to be correct, at least when talking about EPUB3:

XHTML 1.1 is officially a Superseded Recommendation: "A newer specification 
that is recommended for new adoption in place of this specification."

Most epub readers will *probably* silently ignore such invalid attributes, but 
I would not be surprised if there is an embedded reader out there that crashes 
in this case.

There may be all kinds of buggy or obsolete readers.  I would not
worry about them, especially with something so hypothetical.
