Definition of most element is preceded by anchor in a for the-xxx-element and
similarly for attributes (the-xxx-attribute). However I have found that some
attributes doesn't follow this pattern. For example for contenteditable there
is just contenteditable anchor, not the-contenteditable-attribute.

This naming schema should be 100% consistent in order to allow easy linking to
definition of element/attributes from other specs and reference materials.

It this is not feasible I would as editor to provide XML file with mapping from
attribute/element name to an appropriate anchor label.
