That's because loop is treated as a boolean attribute because it's used as such in HTMLMediaElement:

The element constructor is not checked in jQuery when matching the attribute name against predefined boolean ones; changing this method would increase jQuery size and there are not a lot of such boolean attributes.

Anyway, if you use custom attributes without prepending them with data-, it's your responsibility to make sure those names don't conflict with built-in ones, custom attributes are required to be prepended by data- per HTML5 spec.
