Comment:
Greeting,

I am submitting this feedback of the concern of email in form input type.  The
current specification, as was stated already in your own website, too strict
on username part and and too vague on the domain part.

I would like to make the following suggestion:

(1)
Allow plus sign "+" in the username part.  Subaddressing may not be common as
dot ".", but is a legit character and many service providers allows it, and
starts getting recognition among users.

(2)
Allow UTF-8 encoding to both username part and domain name.  IETF working
group Email Address Internationalization (EAI) ( 
http://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/eai/charter/  )    is working to get new mail
standard to allow UTF-8 beyond ASCII characters.  Not allowing it in email
input type hurt the adoption of both new email address adoption and the use of
the new email input type in HTML5.

Thanks for listening.

Best Regards,
Joseph Yee
