           Summary: The "dirty value" concept should be removed or used
                    more
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: mounir.lamouri@gmail.com

The specs say:
"Each input  element has a boolean dirty value flag. When it is true, the
element is said to have a dirty value. The dirty value flag  must be initially
set to false when the element is created, and must be set to true whenever the
user interacts with the control in a way that changes the value."

However, the "dirty value" concept is used only once (a few lines below). The
"dirty value flag" is always used instead. To make things more clear, the
"dirty value" concept could be removed or should be used more often ?
