Hi,

I'd like to propose a new <input> type attribute value for phone  
numbers  (<input type="phonenumber"> perhaps). The primary benefit  
would be to enable use of phone number specific input methods (for  
example a virtual keyboard) and pickers (for example a system address  
book). A useful minimal implementation could limit the allowed  
characters to those legal in phone numbers (+ * # and 0-9).
