I think it is pretty usable that a control itself to have ime-mode as an 
attribute. Especially when creating a new control which inherits the 
control.

IMO, ime-mode can change semantics some part, it is relational to how 
the control is used. .net framework has language(and language mode 
layer) which is not listed in the proposal though, this is one reason 
that I think imo-mode is semantic enough.
