            Bug ID: 24150
           Summary: "createAttribute" "setAttributeNode" have no complete
                    alternative
           Product: WebAppsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: Macintosh

http://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#dom-document-createattribute

[[
createAttribute
]]

http://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#dom-element-setattributenode

[[
setAttributeNode
]]

There is no alternate method provided for setting an attribute with no value. 
For example, the only way to set the checked, selected or disabled attribute
with no value is with element.setAttributeNode( document.createAttribute(
'selected' ) );

The behavior is subtly different then setting the element property as
element.selected = true; because the attribute persists when a form is reset.
