Description Cameron McCormack 2010-10-07 02:13:15 UTC
The algorithm for deleting names for dataset DOMStringMap objects does not need to check the name to ensure it doesn't contain /-[A-Z]/.  The algorithm is only invoked for properties that are "corresponding named properties", which are the names of the items returned from the algorithm for getting the list of name-value pairs, and that algorithm will never return an invalid dataset property name.
