I'm not suggesting that we define the actual bindings. Just that we
describe some of the components that native bindings might use. For
example, a type=number control could have a ::value pseudo and a ::button
pseudo, and the ::value would match the text editing area, and the
::button would match the up and down buttons -- except on platforms that
replace the whole control with just a text control that pops up a spinner,
in which case the ::button wouldn't match anything.
