On getting, it must return the current value of the element. On
setting, it must set the element's value to the new value, set the
element's dirty value flag to true, and then invoke the value
sanitization algorithm, if the element's type attribute's current
state defines one.

That seems to say that setting via .value will set the dirty flag
(although setting via .setAttribute() will not).  Am I mistaken?
