Comment:
"On setting, if the given element has an id attribute, then the content
attribute must be set to the value of that id attribute. Otherwise, the IDL
attribute must be set to the empty string." is strange and breaks reflection.
If the given element isn't in document or is in different document, the
parameter != element.reflectedHTMLElementAttribute.
