Yes, IE does this for all attributes that it doesn't recognize, and they are
editable and you can still use getAttribute to query updated value:

  s += "getAttribute(\"minLength\"): " + userid.getAttribute("minLength") +
  userid.minLength = 99;
  s += "getAttribute(\"minLength\"): " + userid.getAttribute("minLength") +

In IE, output is:

getAttribute("minLength"): 1
getAttribute("minLength"): 99
