ISSUE-57: DOM3EV: Attr mutation events optional?

http://www.w3.org/2005/06/tracker/webapi/issues/57

Raised by: Bjoern Hoehrmann
On product: DOM 3 Events

There were some issues regarding how mutation events interact with
Attr nodes and Attr node subtrees. It seems given that Attr nodes
are Nodes they should behave the same as other nodes, and that is
what the Note tried to convey. I've made some changes to further
clarify this. There was a suggestion, however, to make it optional
for implementations to dispatch mutation events to Attr nodes or
Attr node descendants since use cases for these are rare and some
implementations might be able to gain performance benefits from
doing so. We should continue to allow this since in some imple-
mentations it might be more difficult not to dispatch them and it
is not unimportant for some use cases, generally DOMAttrModified
is sufficient however.
