The problem is that the HTML5 list are tokens for attributes, not human readable names…

All the proposal states is that the name can be programmatically determined, so a browser extension or other assistive technology can simply maintain an HTML5 token to localized name hash table for this purpose, and look up the name from the token.

AC: Yes, but to overcome (mostly John’s) objection the items (names) need to be in a normative part of WCAG, e.g. the definition.

Do you think we can use token/name pairs? E.g.
Full name (‘name’), Prefix or title (‘honorific-prefix’), Etc.

And allow either value to be used?
