Section 17.2.1 of HTML 4.0 says:

object controls
Authors may insert generic objects in forms such that associated values are 
submitted along with other controls. Authors create object controls with 
the OBJECT element.

What is an "associated value" and how exactly is it associated with an 
object?  It doesn't look like these aspects are defined by the spec.  IMO, 
they better be, otherwise will end up with each browser implementing this 
each its own way.
