            Bug ID: 23579
           Summary: Remove the relList IDL attribute
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: HTML5 spec
          Assignee: dave.null@w3.org
          Reporter: jukka.k.korpela@kolumbus.fi
        QA Contact: public-html-bugzilla@w3.org
                CC: mike@w3.org, public-html-admin@w3.org,

The relList IDL attribute defined for <a> and <area> has not been been
implemented (Firefox, Chrome, IE all say it’s undefined). There is no
appropriate definition for it, as it just described as follows: “The IDL
attribute relList must reflect the rel content attribute.” The meaning of
“reflect” is defined in terms of using the same value, but the rel attribute is
a string, whereas relList is declared to be a DOMTokenList object.

The intent is probably that relList should have the rel attribute value as
parsed to a list, but this is not specified. This feature would be some
usefulness, but since it has not been implemented and since the parsing a rel
attribute value can be handled rather easily, relList should be removed at
least for now.
