The Arabic and Persian languages use their own Unicode code points for digits
(U+0660-0669 for Arabic, and U+06F0-06F9 for Persian, see
<http://unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0600.pdf>).  Many Arabic and Persian keyboard
layouts map those code points to the digit keys on keyboards, to enable users
speaking those languages to enter digits in their language.

<input type=number> should allow those code points to be entered, and require
UAs to treat them as Latin digits for processing and form submission, to make
the form control usable to Arabic and Persian users.
