If implementors are keen it probably makes sense to restore it to 5.0
(inputmode was a feature of WML that ended up in XHTML 1.2 IIRC so there are
some people who have implemented it before).

Isn't the approved way of doing this to write an extension spec? (On the plus
side, once you have a template for those it takes about 25 minutes...)
