I think it's ok to keep WML code if we can avoid the form control issue.
We can terminate the form control abstraction for HTML and WML. e.g.
- Merge dom/InputElement to html/HTMLInputElement
- Merge dom/InputElement to wml/WMLInputElement
- Remove dom/InputElement
- Copy RenderTextControlSingleLine as RenderTextControlWML
- RenderTextControlSingleLine only supports HTMLInputElement
- RenderTextControlWML only supports WMLInputElement
We would have some duplicated code. But it would be better than the current
