.src isn't ever diametrically opposite to .currentSrc (it's either blank or
equal), which wouldn't be the case with the muted state. Also, the reflected
version of the content attribute is basically useless, so it would be
unfortunate for it to have the better name.

The audio="" idea has the advantage of being a useful place to hook
audio-related future features, and also doesn't require any
backwards-incompatible changes to existing UAs, which may be an issue at this
point given how fast people have jumped on the <video> bandwagon.
