I think type="emails" would be useful in Webmail systems and similar, but
it's not entirely clear how it should be implemented; submitted as
multiple name/value pairs or one comma delimitted value, how it should
look, etc.

Does it make sense to have

   type="uri" multiple="multiple"
   type="date" multiple="multiple"


How should those be submitted?

I think we should wait for WF3 before adding this.
