Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: The spec is clear that yes, the incomplete form should be submitted.
There's not much we could do about this short of preventing form submissions
entirely before the page is completely loaded. Note that even after the page is
loaded, it's possible that scripts are going to further populate the form so
even then it might not be ready. If this is a problem in practice, authors are
encouraged to add something to the form after everything else has been added,
marking the form as complete, and having server-side scripts check that the
client only sent complete forms.
