Add data attributes to elements for SVG export
But (of course) no support in illustrator for this feature. Worse, if I add them with another tool, then open the SVG in Illustrator, they get stripped from the document entirely. This is just stupid.
Best of all, a data-attributes panel, very similar to the variable panel, but without the redraw bugs. Workflow something like this:
Select an art object.
Go to/Open data-attributes panel.
Click + or select Add attribute from popup corner menu.
Add (e.g.) "mood" with value "happy"
This would not just make me happy, but would also be very useful.

I think this is a duplicate of https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests/suggestions/37298245-add-data-attributes-to-elements-for-svg-export which is older and has more votes
I need this feature, too

Can't wait that this is finally there!
+1. This would be a wonderful feature.

Please add an easy to use SVG tag and attributes editor for the each element, including the document..
For example, the <desk> and <title> tag and the data-* custom attribute would be all appreciated.
The interface could a be a panel with a simple table (with all the tag names on the left and the values on the right) and a plain text field for custom attributes.

This would be hugely useful. I'm surprised there isn't a feature in Illustrator yet. Would make maintaining data attributed to elements so much easier to maintain.
