>From Daniel Bratell: 

I'm really not satisified with that interpretation because the arguments
against selections on type=email ("we might to want to have a fancy UI that
doesn't match a text string") apply to type=uri, type=tel and even
type=password as well.

So I say that if someone wants to have a fancy UI they will have to deal with
how to map selections between the string and the UI, or at least, type=email
and type=url and type=tel should be treated identical in this respect.
