I talked with my colleagues and we came to a conclusion that WebKit should
match IE's and FF's behaviors since we couldn't think of a reason why either
behavior is better.

I filed a WebKit bug https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60600 to track
this behavioral change.

As such, please consider spec'ing this behavior explicitly.
