<input type='text'> could use it too for keywords list for example.

I reported the original. It seems I made a mistake.
Correct Section:
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#attr-input-multiple

Yes, input type text can use it too for keywords/tags fields.

EDITOR'S RESPONSE: This is an Editor's Response to your comment. If you are
satisfied with this response, please change the state of this bug to CLOSED. If
you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML
Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest
title and text for the tracker issue; or you may create a tracker issue
yourself, if you are able to do so. For more details, see this document:

Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: none yet
Rationale: This may be a good idea, but before adding this feature we should
wait to see how well type=email/multiple works. If it works well, then we
should consider adding it elsewhere. If it confuses people, or if
implementations end up too buggy, etc, then we should abandon the idea.
