kAXPlaceholderValue is only defined on 10.6 however, so we need to also define it

Patch

LayoutTests/accessibility/placeholder.html:19
 +              description("This test makes sure that the placeholder is returned as the right attribute");

I would prefer "correct" instead of "right" here to make it clear it's a correct/incorrect issue and not a left/right issue.  :)
