I strongly disagree with dropping the precision attribute for <input
type=range>. I at least like the ability to distinguish between float
How does a user tell the form control to submit as either a float or an
integer now? I already implemented precision="float" to accomplish
this. The precision as an integer ensured that even if the slider was
handing out float values that they would be auto-converted when
accessing/submitting/setting the value attribute. With your changes
this ability seems to have been lost.
