What kind of input type is the following according to HTML 5:

 <input type="   email

According to the attribute value rules of HTML 4 it should be 'email', but I'm
not sure how that is implemented at the moment. Similar question for:

 <input type="email" value="    example at example.org

... valid or invalid?

As Web Forms 2 extends on HTML 4 at the moment this is not particularly clear
and it would be nice to know.
