I don't agree that there are "lots" of broken sites. My main browser is  
Opera and I haven't noticed that problem yet.

The fact that there are some sites using 'required' attribute proves that  
it's a good, intuitive name.

HTML5 is likely to outlive those broken sites. I think it would be shame  
to change to worse name for HTML's lifetime just to avoid temporary  
problem with some sites.
