The text should use future tense. And maybe a simpler way of expressing what needs to be said. Way too confusing.

For example, "attributes" in end tags are ignored currently, but they are invalid, in case a future change to the language makes use of that syntax feature without conflicting with already-deployed (and valid!) content.

For example, "attributes" in end tags are ignored currently. They will be invalid, in case a future change to the language will make use of that syntax feature. 
(The following is a different context, has not much to do with the condition before.) A future change  to the language should/must not conflict with already deployed (and valid!) content. 

Finally, what deployed and valid content in the end tag?
