Another couple of comments regarding validation:

* willValidate IMO should not be true for readonly elements. The user
can't change them anyway, so what's the point of reporting validation
errors to the user?

* same with INPUT type="hidden" (is it excluded already?)

Suggestion: after the line
   <li>The control is not <span><a href="#disabled">disabled</a></span>.
add the following:

   <li>The control is not <span><a href="#readonly">readonly</a></span>.
   <li>The control's type attribute is not hidden.
