My personal preference is to use the presence or absence of an empty
element e.g <isMasked/>.

That way you don't have to worry about what to do if someone gives the
node a value of "widget" when it is supposed to be boolean.

However: an absent element could have been omitted by accident. I
dislike attributing a (potentially important) meaning to data that
isn't tangible.

The heart says flame war... the head says true dat.

<value>false</value> = true

The heart wins.
