[whatwg] Maxlength attribute on input[type=number]

The current whatwg standard  states that maxlength is not a valid attribute for input[type=number].
I built a form and tested it in Firefox, which honours the maxlength attribute, and then found that Chrome did not.
I thought this was a bug, so I reported it to Chromium , who determined it was not a bug and referred me to whatwg.
I'm wondering if there is a rationale for not supporting maxlength on a number field, and if not, how I can go about having the standard changed?
