Spec Comment:

Documentation of <object> @classid

4.8.5 The object element
...
Content attributes:
Global attributes
data
type
name
usemap
form
width
height
DOM interface:
interface HTMLObjectElement : HTMLElement {
           attribute DOMString data;
           attribute DOMString type;
           attribute DOMString name;
           attribute DOMString useMap;
  readonly attribute HTMLFormElement form;
           attribute DOMString width;
           attribute DOMString height;


attribute @classid is listed in the sequence for "the user agent must 
run the following steps to determine what the object element 
represents: ... "
but not in the listing of <object> element Global attributes or DOM 
interfaces.

Also, an <object> can declare Global attribute name-value pairs in 
associated <param> elements and by other communication with the host 
DOM.

Thanks to All and Best Regards,
