[whatwg] Comments on the dropzone attributes

I'd like to propose a few changes to the definition of the dropzone attribute.

1. In the same sentence, the spec says that it is not valid to add the feedback value more than once, but it also says that the first occurrence is to be used.
Can the spec change to simply say that the first occurrence of the feedback value will be used (and it is valid) ?

2. Using "f:" and "s:" for distinguishing strings from files seems needlessly confusing. Why not use "string:" and "file:" ?

3. It seems very useful to allow wildcards in the data type, so instead of defining multiple types for images, "image/*" should be allowed.

Please note that this comments were suggested originally in https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=58210#c26

thanks, Yael
