[whatwg] For Japanese language users, Web Forms should have a way to active/deactive for IME

Just an additional comment:
If IME-mode is supported as a css property, its quite easy to implement 
basic support for IME in CSS, e.g.:

@media keyboard {

   input {
	ime-mode: auto;
   input[inputmode] {
	ime-mode: disable;
   /* all scripts requiring IME */
   input[inputmode~=kanji], input[inputmode~=kana] ... {
	ime-mode: enable;


(Yes I know there is no media called keyboard, my point is just to show 
that ime-mode belongs in css, while script hints belong in (X)HTML.)
