It's used when serializing: things with _moz_dirty are prettyprinted 
even if the serialization is trying to preserve the original whitespace 
layout of the HTML in general.

The fact that it's an actual content attribute is a bug dating back to 
when there was no other good way to associate state to an element in 
Gecko; we just need to fix that.  See
