           Summary: Empty value attributes are being validated.
           Product: Validator
           Version: 1.2
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5
        AssignedTo: mike+validator@w3.org
        ReportedBy: simon@maxqdesigns.com

Perhaps I have misunderstood something, however there seems to be a bug where
the Validator is not in line with the HTML 5 spec. Value attribute should be
able to be left empty. When validating number and date fields with empty value
attribute, an error is shown.

For Numbers:

Bad value for attribute value on element input: The empty string is not a valid
floating point number.

For Dates:

Bad value for attribute value on element input: The literal did not satisfy the
date format.
