[whatwg] Inconsistent behavior for empty-string URLs

The change seems reasonable to me. It just seems that the same change
should be made in all cases that cause similar issues, making it the
rule of the spec instead of an exception for this one case. Does that
make sense?

I seem to remember someone from Mozilla mentioned that they recently  
changed the behavior for img, so Hixie changed the spec for img.
