I agree with Ash 100%.
There is an "id" and a "name" attribute for input (et al) tags -- that's html.
I can use the attribute "name" for php and the attribute "id" for
different scopes running in different environments -- that's the way
Each attribute can be accessed by a variety of languages with no
requirement on any specific language to know what the other languages
may, or may not, be doing -- that's logical.
I can also use the same value for any attribute because there is no
restriction on that either -- as well as it should be.
So, what's the major beef here? Is someone objecting to having both
"id" and "name" being legal attributes for a tag? If so, this is
really not the place to submit a compliant. However, it is the place
to see the error of that thinking.
Giving the slightest bit of thought to dismissing the "name"
attribute from tags should result in the realization that the act
would break countless forms already in use. So the "beef" here is not
well thought out, nor is it likely to happen.
Arguments against using/dismissing the "name" attribute in tags is
