I discovered the same issue while working on
Autofill/requestAutocomplete in Chrome and Ian Hickson mentioned it
was likely just an oversight.  Autofill in Chrome didn't always work
[well] with <select> tags, so I could see how Autofill-related stuff
like [autocomplete] could be out of date.

It'd be nice to avoid more attribute accessors (and encourage authors
to use getAttribute() instead), but if <input> and <textarea> have
them we should probably be consistent.
