I would appreciate clarifications to the following problems wth  
section C.8 in http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/REC-xhtml1-20020801

1. It is unclear whether all element taking and ID attribute should  
also provide a name attribute for backward compatibility with html  

I am assuming that this is only true for elements listed at the end  
of the section, ie: a, applet, form, frame, iframe, img, and map

2. It is seems that the name attribute is not deprecated unless it  
appears in one of the preceding elements.

I am assuming this is correct.

3. In the case of the map element, the HTML 4.0.1 spec indicates that  
it takes only on attribute, name. It is unclear how to handle this in  

I am assuming that the name attribute is replaced by the id  
attribute, and that both should be provided when backward  
compatibility to HTML 4.0.1 is desired.
