OK, renaming the bug further.

Curiously, Firefox 13 does this:

[22:56:55.593] < document.createElement("image")
[22:56:55.596] > [object HTMLSpanElement]
[22:58:20.329] < document.createElement("foobar")
[22:58:20.331] > [object HTMLUnknownElement]

WebKit behavior is both closer to current spec and more logical, so why don't we specify what WebKit does?
