Have the following possible values for the TYPE attribute been considered
for the INPUT element?

type="color"
The user agent would display an appropriate colour picker and would send a
hexidecimal string represting that colour to the server.

type="address"
Indicates that the input should represent an address, the user agent may aid
by displaying data from a GPS or use an online map etc.

type="location"
Same as above but instead of sending an address string it would send
latitude/longitude information, this (as opposed to the above) would send a
well-formed string.

Perhaps coordinates/geocoordinates or something else would be a more
suitable name for the latter.

Regards,
Benjamin
