I just noticed:

==========
http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-html40/struct/links.html#h-7.6.2.3
The A element may define an anchor, a link, or both. 
==========

The A element *always* defines an anchor. A link
consists of two anchors: the source and destination
(a whole document is also an anchor).

========
The id and name attributes share the same name space (see [ISO10646]). 
========

What has ISO10646 got to do with the ID/NAME namespace?

The spec currently makes it sound like ID/NAME share a namespace
for some reason defined by ISO10646 or the SGML spec. That's not
the reason. This notion is novel to the HTML spec.

The whole link section in the 8 July draft is goofy.
