[whatwg] Web forms 2, input type suggestions (Michael A. Puls II)

Indeed, INPUT[type=email] is confusing as well.  I would add [type=address]
and [type=address-list] as candidates because an e-mail address is the most
common type of an address on the Web (the e-mail part can be omitted IMHO).
Using INPUT[multiple=multiple] seems like a good idea as well.

What about "multi-email", "email-list" or "email-addresses"? The last
one is the one I most like, and the most explicit, with the only
(minor) drawback that it's the longest. Anyway, that's just a
suggestion. BTW, the same argument could be made on type="email",
since someone could easily think it expects an entire message.
