[whatwg] Clarification on hashed id reference

Hi all,

I was looking at the definition of a valid hashed id reference, and I  
noticed some inconsistency.  The first sentence says the string must  
match the id attribute, but then the last parsing rule says that the  
string can match the id or name attributes of the element.  If the  
parsing rule is correct, then should there be some rule for  
determining which attribute should get checked first?  And if the  
parsing rule is correct, maybe the initial description should mention  
the name attribute too.
