I've not seen a multiple URL input field before, but if that's a problem
worth solving, we can in the future make multiple="" apply to type=url also.
I agree that pattern="" might make sense for multiline code entry.
However, unless that's much more common than I've so far seen, I don't
think it hits our 80% bar.
