PR-DOM-Level-1-19980818 Element.setAttribute

The interface to an Element allows one to change the value
of an Attribute:

    void setAttribute(String name, String value) throws DOMException ...


It is my understanding that Attributes are typed, but the above
interface does not throw a DOMException if the type of the 'value'
parameter is not the type allowed for the attribute matching 
the 'name' parameter.

Please illuminate.

Thanks.
