Not quite.  This property is used to assist users typing in the correct IME
mode.  For example, when a CJK user types in names, he/she wants to type in
characters as supposed to Latin alphabets so the user needs to active IME
manually.  But websites can assist him/her by enabling IME automatically in
such an input element.
