Proposed solution for Islamic Calendar support

Referring to HTML5 specifications on http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/, there are
new date and time values added to the type attribute of the input element
(date, month, week, time, datetime, datetime-local). These types follow the
Gregorian calendar format while there are more calendars that are widely used
in some regions ( for example the Islamic (Hijri ) Calendar which is the
official calendar in Saudi Arabia and other ME countries). There are business
needs that require national calendars so some libraries like ICU4j and Dojo
toolkit added the support for national calendars. 

Please find attached a proposal for adding the support of the Islamic Calendar
in HTML5 specifications.
