The section on maxlength in http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-forms/current-work/ 
(the 12 October 2006 version) says nothing about what happens if script on the 
page (or script from a bookmarklet, whatever) does:

   myInput.value = "some long string";

where the string length is longer than myInput.maxlength.

This should probably be specified.
