Customizing Main Menu question

I want to customize the navigation, especially main menu to allow for 'data-section' attributes in order to have bootstrap managing them through jQuery.


The traditionnal Menu from Orchard doesn't allow custom data attributes for li.
Adding a Custom Attribute to the Menu Item view to enter 'data-section' then the section value will necessitate a large change (new module? new storage for added values ? new migration ? etc.) may be out of my actual knowledge of Orchard ? 
Is it something that could be done ? No show stopper ?
Looking for basic steps to accomplish this ? Thanks.
