Wouldn't this make the most sense if the multiple attribute behaved
the same way on other elements, as it currently does with <select
multiple="multiple">? IIRC, when multiple values are selected, multiple
name=value pairs are submitted, so therefore, if it were applied to uri
and date inputs, as above, then multiple name=value pairs should also be
The only problem is that it may not degrade gracefully into older
UAs, and would still need to submit a delimited list in one name=value
pair, so the server would need to check whether multiple pairs were
recieved; or, if only one was recieved, whether it contains a delimited
list of values, or a single value.
