Hi, all,

In https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5578, Maciej Stachowiak recently brought up a question on whether we should support DOM 3 feature isId and setIdattribute in WebKit. Maciej thought it brought complication for allowing "multiple ID attributes" (Maybe Maciej meant to say "alternate names for the ID attribute". Can you confirm, Maciej?). On the other hand, as my personal opinion, the feature gives web developer the ability to customize Id attribute names. I think it's pretty useful as in real world, the identification field of a data entry is not necessarily named "id".

I hope people can join this discussion and let's decide whether we want this in or not together.

FYI, related specification can be found in:

Thanks very much!

Chang Shu
