I think the debate over this choice should end, or should already have 
ended, on this list. There are other forums for such discussions, and as 
regards to validation, there is absolutely no difference between them 
(or between them and type="hello world!").

The choice is relevant, of course, but the options and their basic 
characteristics have been described now, and anything beyond that is 
surely off-topic here,
