           Summary: Attribute getters/setters should lower case argument on
                    HTML elements in HTML docs

The spec says that Element.setAttribute() should lower case its argument. This
is bad for SVG.

Instead, the spec should say that in an HTML document, setAttribute,
getAttribute and getAttributeNode on HTMLElement objects must lower case the
attribute name argument.
