See comment 2.

> What is the logic about "It's what IE does"?

The logic is simple.  As of when the spec was being written IE and Opera sent
just .x and .y; WebKit and Gecko sent those and the name/value.  To converge on
a behavior here, either IE and Opera would have to change or WebKit and Gecko
would have to change.

So the editor had to pick one or the other behavior, with a 50-50 split.  He
picked one.

Now please go and read the mailing list archives, where this is all discussed
at length, instead of asking me to repeat all the arguments, ok?
