We are intending to implement the HTML5 <menu> tag.

The related specs can be found at:-
       - http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#the-menu-element
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/interactive-elements.html#the-menu-element .

A bug for the purpose is already logged at webkit bugzilla (

Currently webkit does have a support for menu tag (not html5) with below

    interface HTMLMenuElement : HTMLElement {
        attribute [Reflect] boolean compact;

Where as the proposed new implementation will have the interface as:-

    interface HTMLMenuElement : HTMLElement {
           attribute DOMString type;
           attribute DOMString label;

So my question is should we also support the earlier menu tag
