If you just want to appease the W3C Validator, then write your own DTD.

I've written one that allows <input type=search>:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//KURS BROWSEHAPPY//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict +  
Hacks//EN" "http://kurs.browsehappy.pl/xhtml.dtd">
See http://kurs.browsehappy.pl/xhtml.dtd

It's not using the X of XHTML. For HTML it looks almost identical.
