This is a completely unrelated issue, and your claim of what image  
maps apply to is inconsistent with the current HTML5 draft. I know you  
have a longstanding disagreement with this aspect of the HTML5 spec,  
but this is probably not a point where the WebKit project would want  
to diverge from the spec.
