[whatwg] <input type="text" accept="">

The Mozilla guys propose (in bug 339127) to make the accept="" attribute 
on <input> elements also apply to types other than type=file, with the 
same meaning as we currently have on <textarea>. Their particular use case 
is to use this as a hook for showing or hiding the spell-check UI.

What do people think? Good idea? Bad idea?
