  No, the `name` and `id` attributes have completely different
  purposes.  A form field must have a `name` attribute to be sent as
  part of the form (this is an HTML thing, not a Prototype thing).  The
  `id` attribute is unrelated to forms, it's used for addressing
  elements (looking them up in JavaScript or using them as anchors).
