Point 3.3 says that the name attribute should be converted in name_x and name_y
but it also says to "Skip the remaining substeps for this element" and this
means, as i understand it, not to elaborate point 4 which is the point that
states the "name" attribute should be sent too.

>From a server side, when i have a regular "input" tag, i'll receive the "name"
field too, but when i have a "input type=image" tag i'll receive only "name_x"
and "name_y" but not "name".

In the HTML 4.01 standard i linked it doesn't say in any place that when the
input type is "image" the "name" attribute should not be sent (together with
name_x and name_y). Did this change in HTML5?
