Why do you think that the name attribute in general was deprecated?

<http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#h-4.10>:
HTML 4 defined the name attribute for the elements a, applet, form, 
frame, iframe, img, and map. HTML 4 also introduced the id attribute. 
Both of these attributes are designed to be used as fragment identifiers.
[...]
Note that in XHTML 1.0, the name attribute of these elements is formally 
deprecated, and will be removed in a subsequent version of XHTML.
