Thanks Andi. Overall, these proposals and resolutions look good. A 
couple questions:

I'm not clear on what is mean by "text typing to select items from 
list." Is this referring to UA behavior? Not sure what role an author 
can have in making this behavior available.

"expected a certain way" seems awkward. How about:

4. For entry fields where data must meet specific formatting 
requirements, such as a 2 digit month followed by a 4 digit year, 
provide examples of correct input or provide instruction about the 
required format.
