[webkit-dev] Please do not enable ENABLE_INPUT_TYPE_DATETIME

Please do not enable ENABLE_INPUT_TYPE_DATETIME to ship <input
type=datetime>implementation in your products.

We had some discussion in WHATWG [1] [2] and realized <input type=datetime>
UIs in iOS Safari and Android Chrome are wrong and harmful. The current
code for <input type=datetime> in WebCore can't make a reasonable UI and
should not be shipped in products.

For other new input types, they are ready to implement platform-specific
code.  We're going to post an implementation guide or make a wiki page to
explain what is needed.
