I've updated the proposal with the following changes:

1. Form method accepts any value excluding the following blacklist:
CONNECT, TRACE, TRACK
2. Replaced "_none" payload attribute state with the extension of the
"disabled" attribute to <output> and <object> for obtaining the same
functionality and limiting the ability to restrict form submission
elements to this single flag.
3. Replaced "_async_" form control field with a form submission
attribute on <form>, <input> and <button> allowing for initiation of
a/sync requests defined by the submission element.

Thanks,
Cameron Jones
