           Summary: add "is a boolean attribute" to definition of muted
                    attribute for the video element
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: mike@w3.org

http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/video.html#attr-media-muted currently just states
"The muted attribute on the video element controls the default state of the
audio channel of the media resource, potentially overriding user preferences."

That doesn't give any information about what datatype the muted content
attribute is. 

For other other boolean content attributes, the spec explicitly states that
they are boolean; for example:

http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/video.html#attr-media-loop
"The loop attribute is a boolean attribute that, if specified, indicates that
the media element is to seek back to the start of the media resource upon
reaching the end."

So the definition of the muted content attribute should use similar language;
e.g.:

"The muted attribute on the video element is a boolean attribute that controls
the default state of the audio channel of the media resource, potentially
overriding user preferences."
