[webkit-dev] NPP_GetValue with 'NPPVpluginScriptableNPObject' is not invoked automatically in XHTML content for a NS Plugin embedded object.

I have embedded an NS plugin object using <object> </object> .

When the page is served as XHTML, the NS plugin  scriptable object is NOT instantiated, even when the plugin implements NPP_Get() for NPPVpluginScriptableNPObject . Whereas, if the same page is served as HTML content, then, the scriptable object gets instantiated.

I also noticed that, in xhtml content , the scriptable NS plugin object gets instantiated only upon first call to 'getElementById'. Thus making 'getElementById' mandatory for Javascript binding to the embedded object.

XHTML specification doesn't specify any rules related to 'auto instantiation' of NS Pligin object. But, the behavior should not vary from HTML to XHTML.

So, Is it a bug?
