dndData attribute on declarative dndItem does not translate strings into JSON objects

When using the declarative syntax for defining a dndItem within a Container the dndData attribute is not handled as a JSON object - it is always handled as a string, this is in contrast to the programatic model where a true JSON object can be passed into the insertNodes method.

<div class="griditem positiongriditem dojoDndItem"  dndType="sometype" dndData="{name:'test',data:'somedata'}" >

In the above example the value within the dndData attribute is not converted to an object, so if I define a custom creator function for the Avatar as a template which attempts to retrieve a the name property it will fail.

Also these should probably be converted html5 style to data-* attributes.
