[TreatNullAs=EmptyString]; however, I think that what Simon proposes makes more
sense. I filed <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=772526>.

(Another question is what to do with non-DOMString reflecting attributes; I'm
not sure if we'd want to make the same change there in the same time frame,
because that's somewhat hard with our current bindings.)

We agreed not to do that; I think we can and should stay with that decision.
