I've filed https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=23564 to track 
this.

Furthermore, shipping this in Firefox nightlies found a similar problem 
with Node.cloneNode, affecting actual web sites (and pretty commonly 
too).  I've filed https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=23565 
on that.

At that point, I checked for all "optional boolean whatever = true" in 
Gecko's WebIDL.  The only other consumer is Element.scrollIntoView. 
I've proactively filed 
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=23566 for that.
