Has the XHTML 1.1 spec been updated to make the usemap attribute type 
"URI" instead of "IDREF"?

The w3c validator has not been updated to handle the change at least.

Opera and Mozilla developers are not supporting the usemap attribute as 
type "IDREF" specifically because of that linked page above.

It's almost been 3 years ago that message was posted. Any plans to 
update the validator to handle the change?

Any info on this issue would be greatful.
