doesn't w3c recommendations follow how people use and browsers supports things?

possible i am wrong, but searching for getElementsByName() gives me a 
feeling that attribute "name" is more used than often ...

but i am possible wrong

i just thought that deprecating name is a mistake, but if nobody agrres, 
fine for me, i will still use it, works in all browsers (on all elements) 
and native getElementsByName() is much faster than userspace implementations 
of getElementsByClass
