Should IE9 be in cloneFixAttributes? It's not using attachEvent except perhaps in special events, and there is already an open ticket for event problems caused by cloning special events. I suspect it got here due to noCloneChecked, unless the support.js rewrite introduced a bug.

It was called on element creation.
cacheable is true there so it returns a cloned fragment. Unfortunately, clearAttributes is not on the SVGElement prototype in IE9 and throws an exception.

// original attributes, not the events
