>If it's up to the browser to decide, that's about as good for me as no solution.

That’s a bit hyperbolic. The browser vendors already make lots of decisions. Even today, we have to neutralize left padding and margin on lists, and the world hasn’t ended. And vendors are now working together better than ever to bring their implementations in line with one another.

>Also you should be careful with browsers that don't support some of these input types, since they will always render it as a text type input.

In these cases, we have a classic progressive enhancement scenario. The browsers ought to ignore the type it doesn’t support and default to `:text`, just as they already do today.
