Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: This bug report requests the HTML spec to provide <param name=foo
value=bar> children for <source> as a mechanism for special-purpose browsers to
attach name-value parameters to the <source> element. <source> element is
treated as a void element in shipped versions of all the five major
general-purpose browsers. Void elements can't have children, so this bug report
is asking for an HTML parser change. HTML already provides a way to attach
name-value pairs to an element: attributes. HTML also provides guidance on how
to mint vendor-proprietary attributes:
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#extensibility Therefore, the general
problem of attaching proprietary name-value pairs to the <source> element is
WORKSFORME and the specific solution of introducing <param> children to
<source> is WONTFIX.
