Steps to reproduce:

Insert the following code into the console:

el = document.createElement("input")
el.type = 'checkbox'
console.log("before: ", el.checked)
console.log("after: ", el.checked)

Actual results:

Both console logs have the el.checked value of 'false'.

Expected results:

The second console log value should have been 'true'.

If I append this element to the DOM and then click it, it works fine.

The example code above works fine in Chrome and IE.

It's not clear to me what, if anything, the spec says here...
