           Summary: form.action, button.formAction and input.formAction
                    IDL attributes should return the document location
                    when the content attribute is the empty string

Currently, those attributes reflects the content attribute as an URL so when
the content attribute is the empty string, it will return the base URL but the
form submission algorithm specifies that when action="", the submission URL
should be the document location.
It would be nice to have the IDL attributes reflecting this specificity.
