What's wrong with that?

As far as I know the name and id attributes of a form tag don't have to be equal.

They do not have to be equal; it's nicer looking if they are, though, unless there's a good reason for a difference.

That said, I don't think we should bother changing it. Some plugin may have JS that depends on either the name or the id.

I agree.
