If we do anything here it needs to be harmonized with  

If the main use case is asynchronous submission it could be something as  
simple as <form>.formData which seems better than tying it to the submit  

(This has been suggested various times before as well by the way. We are  
just waiting for some more stabilization of various other <form> and  
XMLHttpRequest features first.)
