[whatwg] Allowed characters in attribute names

The embed element should be deprecated because of the expando feature that
makes it so special.  I understand that having both embed and object can
capture some semantic differences where "embed" means "display" and "object"
means "run" but breaking the fixed interface rule weighs more than
introducing this distinction IMHO.

Oops, sorry. (Hmm, haven't I read it on the WHATWG or W3C-HTML mailing
list a few days ago though?)
