IMHO, there is no three <select> control "problem".
Using three <select> controls is an accessible solution, easy to
understand, and unambiguous.
I do not think we need to try to convert people who are using three
<select>s to using type="date" (or any other WF2 solution for dates). The
benefits it would bring are minimal (basically, it would be prettier, in
UAs that support a graphical calendar -- in UAs that don't the interface
would probably be identical or merely localised).
