The current whatwg standard [1] states that maxlength is not a valid attribute for input[type=number].

I built a form and tested it in Firefox, which honours the maxlength attribute, and then found that Chrome did not.

I thought this was a bug, so I reported it to Chromium [2], who determined it was not a bug and referred me to whatwg.

I'm wondering if there is a rationale for not supporting maxlength on a number field, and if not, how I can go about having the standard changed?
