As stated in the manual, the .data() method pulls in the HTML5 data- attributes only once per element.

However, this is bad from a debugging perspective - I would like to be able to do a $(el).attr("data-foo","bar") followed by either .data() or further .attr("data-foo","...") calls so that the current value of the data attribute is visible in the DOM inspector.
