[whatwg] HTML 5 : Misconceptions Documented

The attribute FORM.length is not parseable: it cannot be defined in the HTML
source and such definition should be ignored.  The intrinsic computed length
attribute should take precedence over the imported control name which can be
retrieved calling form.elements.item("length").

Testcases to determine what implementations do and what are the worst
problems to avoid would be the most useful at this point. For example,
a HTMLFORMElement with the name "length", and attribute "length" on
the form.

<form length="10">
  <input name="length">
</form>

Please do make up some test cases. You can post these to the list.
Talk to Ian about where to upload them for reference.
