[FIX]<object> mysteriously acquires type attribute (when plugin loads?)
Steps to reproduce: 1. Load http://software.hixie.ch/utilities/js/live-dom-viewer/?%3Cbody%3E%3Cobject%20data%3Dflash%3E 2. Add a space. Result: The object element is shown as having an attribute type="application/x-shockwave-flash" Expected: The object should continue to not have a type attribute.
Gah. It looks like bug 277434 only sort of got fixed. nsPluginStreamListenerPeer::OnStartRequest still calls SetType(), not SetActualType(), which is what's setting the attribute now... Not that anyone _uses_ the thing it sets. Which means this stuff was likely "broken" in 1.8 (writing to .type, reading .actualType), and no one ever noticed. That argues that it's not so useful, to me. In any case, now that we have nsObjectLoadingContent, which implements an actualType getter that has nothing to do with attributes, can we just rip out the nsPluginStreamListenerPeer::OnStartRequest code? It would be good to not mess up the DOM like this...

Jesse, can you think of a way to test this?
