We're down to 20 total, 10 from HTML4 and 10 new ones, 6 of which are
date-related, 2 of which are numeric, and 2 of which are text-based.
We'll probably add type=color soon, and maybe type=emails or some such
some time after that. In general though I agree that we should keep things
to a minimum, just as with all parts of the Web platform.
