[Bug 23876] New: Typing keys algorithm should special case input type=file elements


            Bug ID: 23876
           Summary: Typing keys algorithm should special case input
                    type=file elements
           Product: Browser Test/Tools WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux

          Priority: P2
         Component: WebDriver

The typing keys section specifies key-based interaction with web elements that
are interactable.  There's no special casing of input type=file elements which,
from a driver perspective, requires special handling.

My suggestion is that we allow that to short-curcuit the algorithm and leave
the steps to fill filename(s) into the field undefined since the widgets are
radically different depending on user agent and operating system.

As we discussed at the F2F in Boston we also need to cover input type=file
multiple elements.
