In that case it might be better to re-introduce the inputmode="" attribute  
for this purpose. The specific type="" attribute values actually ensure  
(when implemented) that some normalized form of the data goes to the  
server. If that is not a goal here I'm not sure we should introduce a  
type="" attribute value for it.
