> Rationale: Only IE seems to do this.

FWIW, Gecko supports document.createElement("<div>") in the quirks mode. It
doesn't support specifying attributes on the pseudo-tag and doesn't support
this variant in the Almost Standards and Standards modes.

The rationale for adding support was compat with IBM enterprise apps.
