2.12. The datalist element and the list attribute states:


For the text, email, url, date-related, time-related, and numeric types 
of the input element, a new attribute list is introduced to point to a 
list of values that the UA should offer to the user in addition to 
allowing the user to pick an arbitrary value.

Isn't that all the types of the input element? Is there any type that is 
not one of text, email, url, date-related, time-related, and numeric?

If that's accurate, the initial phrase can be dropped, and instead it 
could say something like "For the input element, a new attribute list is 
introduced to point to a list of values that the UA should offer to the 
user in addition to allowing the user to pick an arbitrary value."

If that's not accurate, please do enlighten me as to the type I'm 
missing, because obviously I'm missing something. :-)
