jQuery does not support enumerated attributes such as contenteditable

I see no way around creating a regex of boolean attributes which are boolean by spec so that we do not interfere with enumerated attributes. The properties for enumerated attributes should actually be "true", "false", and "" (instead of same name, existent, empty string, and removed as in boolean attributes) and we can make this easy for our users with a regex.
The regex is also required when setting html5 boolean attributes, where those corresponding properties are undefined in browsers that do not support html5, so the boolean property check fails (for instance autofocus).
#9123 is related.
I think this will make things much simpler and true to spec, and actually be faster (once the regex is built).
