If I remember correctly, some IEs get confused in forms when you have names that conflict with attribute types, since IE gives you the option of traversing a form via the element names as expandos. This is not the case in most modern browsers.
I believe the best solution is to avoid using attribute names and your name value. We could potentially find a work-around to this problem and get it in, but at the cost of performance and file-size that probably aren't worth the fix.
If you have a patch for this that you'd like us to consider, we'd be happy to work with you on it, and then ultimately see if it would make sense to go into the library, but for now, I think we're intentionally not working on this, due to obscurity and ease of a workaround.
