The idea is that it would be set if doing XHTML 1.1, be it for epub or

For now, my plan is to do XHTML1.1 as a separate init file.

Why? XHTML 1.1 is an obsolete format.  It is not required for EPUB 3.x,
which is a 10-year old specification.

EPUB does requires content document to be XML:

However, my reading of the spec finds no indications that custom data 
attributes are
disallowed.  It notes that data attributes must be stripped before being fed
to a validator - which implies that they are allowed, but the validator does 
not handle them:

So my recommendation is: Just leave the data attributes in, even for XHTML/EPUB.

I think my previous poposal is still reasonable:
