A larger share of web usage is on mobile, and in addition to use of mobile web
browsers, many mobile apps use web views to implement part of their interface.
We should include iOS and Android mappings for all HTML elements too.

On iOS, Apple's WebKit implementation is the only one allowed to display web
content - alternative web browsers based on a different engine are not
currently allowed. Still, I think it'd be useful to spec for several reasons:

* To help catch bugs in Apple's implementation
* To clarify the expected mappings and behavior for HTML authors, especially
app authors who need native content and web content to interoperate
* In case Apple relaxes the rules in the future and allows alternative web
