>(BTW what happened to comment 11 on bug 11482? It was the closest thing we had to data on this, but the comment seems to have been deleted somehow?)

I am not sure why comment 11 does not show up in the Bugzilla entry for 11482 at:
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=11482#c11


but I found the original text of comment 11 in the Bugzilla email archive at:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-bugzilla/2011Oct/0513.html


I hope this helps.

I am not sure how we can resurrect comment 11 but maybe Mike Smith could look into this?

'Accept attribute should allow file extensions in addition to the current allowed values'
The current status for this issue:

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/197

http://dev.w3.org/html5/status/issue-status.html#ISSUE-197


So far, we have one Change Proposal submitted:

http://www.w3.org/wiki/Accept_Attribute_with_File_extensions


Do we have implementation experience for this one yet? The proposed change seems more or less in line with the change I expect will be made for bug 15607 if implementation experience shows that we need support for both MIME types and extensions, but currently I have no data to make that assumption.
