The two old attributes that use hyphens (http-equiv and accept-charset) are a
weird legacy.  The two classes of new attributes that use hyphens (data-* and
aria-*) represent an open class of attributes, and the hyphen serves a useful
purpose of representing that the preceding string is a common prefix (already
established by CSS as a common pattern).  Many other attributes that could
potentially read better with hyphens, like formnovalidate (form-no-validate?)
are hyphenless.

For consistency, let's drop the hyphen.  I don't want to have to remember any
more exceptions to the no-hyphen rule than I'm already forced to.
