[whatwg] getValues on PropertyNodeList is now redundant

I'm not sure. getValues returns an array of the itemValue of the nodes
in the NodeList. Something that can be trivially implemented as:

PropertyNodeList.prototype.getValues = function() {
  return this.map(function(node) {
    return node.itemValue;

If this is commonly used then it might make sense to keep it so that
not every application has to duplicate this code.
