Input Elements

Extensive work will need to be done that the new elements have
appropriate accessibility for users with disabilities, including
keyboard/non-pointer-device accessibility, as well as appropriate
indicators of states and attributes that impact how or whether a user
can interact with that input element.  Although there could be great
promise in having a consistent means of providing input elements,
accessibility concerns will need to be taken into account when
determining how user agents display that information to the user, and
expose information to AT.
