[whatwg] Object data Attribute

   Should the data attribute be required for <object>?  There is at 
least one plugin that doesn't need it.  XStandard embeds itself without 
using it, like this:

<object type="application/x-xstandard" id="editor1" width="100%" 
   <param name="Value" value="Hello World!" />

I'm not sure whether that's a correct use of the object element or not, 
and I do think it would make more sense for XStandard to replace a 
textarea, but there must be implementation issues with that or something.
