I'm not sure what the second argument should be in terms of Web IDL. It's  
basically an unconstrained dictionary, but we do not have that at the  
moment.

It's also unclear to me whether the second argument should set properties  
or attributes. Setting attributes would be consistent with the DOM model.  
Setting properties might be more convenient, but e.g. setting innerHTML  
complicates matters as there is also a third argument to Element.create to  
conveniently set children.
