Reading the change log it seems clear that exposing this attribute to the DOM was unintentional. The change log mentions marking the manifest attribute URL, but not creating the manifest attribute. The patch was supposed to correct the reflection of content attributes, not expose additional attributes.

I believe it should be removed.
