Mutation events should fire after an attribute is removed
Currently we fire a mutation-event before removing an attribute. This is wrong according to the DOM-spec, it says to fire all DOMAttrModified events after the attribute is modified. This should be easy to fix, the only thing to keep in mind is that we need to get the attribute-node before removing the attribute, otherwise it won't be there.
semi-related: We need some sort of mechanism for telling attribute-nodes that they are going away. Currently the attribute-node can be compleatly unaware that it no longer is an attribute on the element. One way to fix this is to every time we need to do something where that matters call mContent->HasAttr(mNodeInfo...). The problem is that that won't catch the case of the attribute being removed and then reinserted. However i'm not sure if that matters.
Note that the behavior for attr removal and element/pi/whatever removal is totally different (node removal events fire _before_ the node is removed). The two really should be treated symmetrically, since there is no substantive difference between attr nodes and other nodes..... imo this is a problem with the spec.
it's additionally interesting because we fire at least some of the child-insert event after the change has taken place :)
more fun: we're calling GetAttributeNode when we should call GetAttributeNodeNS to retrieve the relevant attributenode before firing off mutation-events
This should be fixed now.
