The method to disguise a file input control as described is and should
remain a dirty trick; if the user agent allows it, some add-on should detect
it and offer a warning.  Allowing semantic customization could be
interpreted as encouragement.

I don't think this is a valid argument since you can change it anyway [1].

I do not feel like having the file submission control styled and customized
in any way; submitting a file poses a serious security and privacy risk so I
would not like to see this control disguised as something else.  Just like
an alert window title, it should have a consistent look for all
applications.

This issue seems to be a very recurring and still unsolved problem when
dealing with Web internationalization / multi-language Web Apps.
I would like to suggest this to be reviewed with an editor comment please.

Additionally, it's important if we could decorate separately the file path
text field and the browse button using CSS.

Best reagards,
Samuel Santos
