The value is much more understandable markup, as well as markup which is easier
to style or otherwise deal with. For example if you want to use XBL to render
menuitems yourself you can do that more easily if menuitems all have the same
name.

I'd likewise ask the opposite question. What's the benefit of using the same
element name for something that has dramatically different rendering? The fact
that <input> does has been more a source of annoyance than a benefit.
