[Bug 8235] Given that Gecko and Webkit don't support them in XML, I think that named properties in HTMLDocument objects should be restricted to HTML documents, given that this feature is only included for backward compatibility and is horribly designed.

bz: do you think this bug should be wontfixed, then? (I can see arguments both
ways — remove them because it encourages bad authoring, keep them to enable
transition to XHTML.)

I'm happy to have the spec say whatever implementations are going to do here.
Any advice from implementors on what to do would be very welcome.
