My vote: get rid of #tooltip:.  I think most people who work with  
HTML are used to thinking of that as "title".  Then either push  
#title: up or make sure it exists in all of the places it makes sense  
(I haven't looked at the spec, can you really have it on any tag?).

You can forward them to me.  I'm used to breaking backwards  
compatibility, and in minor cases like this it's easy for people to  
fix their code.  Of course, that's easy for me to say, because I know  
I have no senders of #tooltip: to change. :)
