I indeed would rather not. Feature-freeze means, well, feature-freeze.

If it was just a matter of renaming the attribute, I would agree, but
maxlength="" would have to remain, so it wouldn't be just a matter of
renaming the attribute. (e.g. it would imply a new DOM attribute, new
prose to cover the behaviour of the attribute for other input types, a new
row in the table in the appendix, etc.)

these specs just for the fun of it. :-)
