<object>: should the name attribute be allowed for form submission with plug-ins?

Maybe the name attribute should be allowed on OBJECT if it's inside a form.

Use-case:
<form>
    <object type="application/x-xstandard" name="markup" width="400"
height="400"></object>
    <input type="submit">
</form>

< http://xstandard.com/en/downloads/?product=lite >

Note that this doesn't work with everything. If you have
type="image/gif" data="logo.gif" for example, the object wouldn't be
used unless the implementation of the image/gif handler made it work
(somehow).
