Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project!

This is not really of consequence since you want to retrieve the attribute instead of the property. Custom attributes may or may not be reflected by a property depending on the browser. If you need it to be a property, you can set it with prop, but in the use case you've provided, .attr("age") will be consistent across browsers and that is what you want to retrieve.
