Having thought about this, I agree with Hixie that having .muted reflected as a
content attribute is a bad idea since we want to allow the browser to remember
the mute setting but we don't want to make that mutate the DOM during parsing.
However, I think calling the content attribute something else is also a bad
idea, since muted="" is what most authors would intiutively try to use to mute
the video with markup. Thus, I think we should follow the precedent set with
<input value>, .value and .defaultValue, and introduce <video muted> which is
reflected with .defaultMuted.
