What use cases are you trying to address and what problems are you trying to
solve?  If numbers other than base 10 are needed, why isn't type=text with a
pattern attribute to restrict the allowable characters sufficient?  Can you
provide significant examples of sites accepting non-base-10 numerical input for
something?
