Since a vast majority of existing UAs do, I believe we should.

(Tested IE, Firefox and Chrome - all normalize JS-assigned values. Only Opera
differs, it has not caused us problems that I'm aware of but we intend to
change anyway.)

Additionally, Firefox and Chrome normalize form element names with CRs or LFs
in them. Haven't checked if this happens during parsing or submit.
