This is odd, because it's an HTML5-style message (the format is 
different when validating as HTML 4.01).

Currently, the following document validates:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<map name=foo>

But perhaps you have a different <area> element that somehow makes the 
validator think that href is required. Can you please post a URL (or an 
exact, copy & paste copy of a document) for a document that fails 
validation with the error message you quoted?
