Usage is a matter of quantifiable fact, not a matter of W3C Rec track 
status. If it is agreed that the legacy implied by released Firefox 
makes the attribute name "autobuffer" unsuitable to resuse at this time 
it is strictly irrelevant whether the legacy came from following a 
"released specification", proprietary invention, an unintended bug, or 
an amazingly improbable set of cosmic-ray induced bit flips on the build 
machine.
