[webkit-dev] Implementation thoughts on HTML5 elements

I'm concerned about the actual implementation of email, url, tel and  
number. In shipping versions of Safari (and maybe other browsers ?),  
those are exposed but without new functionality. Before that, a simple  
test on input.type != number was sufficient to provide an alternative  
via Javascript if necessary. And it goes against the philosophy of  
testing the functionality instead of relying on browser sniffing.
