I looked at F17 in a bit more detail and added the following notes into 
the WG Notes box at

    Following the call I researched a little more. I think we should use
    the text in the HTML5 spec to give a proposed change to bullet 4 of

    "For client-side image maps, check that the value of the usemap
    attribute is a valid hash-name reference to a map element."

    Hash-name reference in html5 is defined at
    Perhaps this should be added in the resources section.

    On further thoughts perhaps we should genericise this even more to
    cover other cases which use hash-name references.
    Proposed steps in a more generic test procedure are:

    1) Check that attribute values that have an idref value have a
    corresponding id value.
    2) Check that attribute values that have a hash-name reference refer
    to a valid name or id.

    If step #1 or step #2 is false, then this failure condition applies
    and the content fails the success criterion.
