A couple of months ago I sent some feedback regarding inputmode  and
based on your reply  I assumed that you agreed that we should
probably differentiate inputmode and scripts.
However, I see that the IME API isn't making this difference and creates
a lot of inputmode values to be able to handle different scripts. Is
there a specific reason why or is this just in order to follow the HTML
