Certain DOM attributes such as the href DOM attribute[1] are implemented
differently than specified. The attribute is implemented as to return a
resolved link, not as equivalent to the href HTML attribute.

I also think that these kind of things should be more clearly defined in the Web
Forms 2 DOM interfaces[2] as the W3C DOM level 2 HTML[3] is not clear at all
about the relation between DOM attributes and HTML attributes such as action
for example.
