Many, many uses of time-controls have these annotations; all day for
events, Morning/Afternoon/Evening, Any, etc.  If, say, 80% of the
time-entry widgets on the web are going to have to be custom anyway,
do we get a lot of value out of specifying -- and browser developers
out of implementing -- a time input type?
