           Summary: Remove form owner from scope chain in event handlers
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch

In Section 7.1.6.1 under Lexical Environment Scope, avoiding step 2 (adding the
form owner into the scope chain for form-associated elements) could yield a
performance improvement to the spec. We have evidence that implementors would
not endure a compat impact by avoiding this step because we’ve been shipping
like this and haven’t witnessed issues. Since removing it could yeild a
performance improvement in the spec and there doesn't appear to be a compat
impact, the spec would be better without it.
