New JQuery test proposal; keeping inputmode or not?

Hi,

As per my action item, I've reviewed Wilhelm's proposal for a
JQuery-based test in the Web Compatibility Test:
http://www.w3.org/2008/06/mobile-test/new-test.html
http://www.w3.org/2008/06/mobile-test/jquery.js

The test looks good in itself, although I'm a bit concerned it requires
a 58 KB download of the script; I guess we could reduce that down to ~20
KB by gzipping if we go ahead with it.

I mentioned last week that it looked like inputmode was being
implemented in webkit:
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=23588

At this time, this is only the DOM interface, but I wonder if this
shouldn't make us reconsider our idea to drop the inputmode test.

In any case, I think the idea of testing support for JQuery in mobile
devices is an interesting one; maybe we could make a few test cases and
put them in the mobile test harness? I could see us separating test for
support of sizzle (which I understand is a CSS Selectors library common
to several Javascript frameworks), and a few test supporting some basic
features in Jquery?
