General question, the input picker covers a whole lot, time, date, email, etc and is all kept together. Why is color different? and warrants a api on its own? API legacy? Can it be fixed?

Second question, why not make a proper WebKit2 C api for setting these which can be shared across ports and easily wrapped if needed. It feels pretty much like something which should be part of the UIClient. Have you looked into what kind of similar API we might get in the near future? File picker? Media picker?

I think you need to consider all these picker API's and figure out where they differ and which ones deserve an API on their own and which ones can be shared. Also you need to consider future changes in these APIs. How do we make an API that is more or less future proof? Do we need to?

What do we need really?

Media picker? (photos, files, etc)
Date and Time picker (date, time, month, week, etc)
Color picker?

That seems to cover most what is needed now.

telephone, number, email, url, password etc will probably not be implemented using pickers (they might, they might not). As we don't know how to handle these now, maybe we should leave them for later?

Lots of questions which I think should be looked at before diving into the code
