Hello,
in the HTML standard (the one web-developers read)
http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/interact/forms.html#h-17.4 you state that the
input element has a "name" attribute and since the type="image" is a subclass
it is reasonable to expect it present there too.

But in the implementation standard (the one web-browser-developers read)
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/association-of-controls-and-forms.html#constructing-the-form-data-set
(point 3.3) the "name" attribute is excluded.

Here we have two standard documents in contraddiction with each other.

Which one is right?
