The spec doesn't preclude user agents from implementing type=number in a way
that exposes other bases, so as far as I can tell this is already possible.

For use cases such as entering large amounts of hex data, however, I would
recommend using <textarea> rather than <input type=number>. It's not like
people are going to be entering chunks of hex using a spin control.

For sorting in datagrids, the sorting is done by the script, so HTML doesn't
have to provide any particular base support.
