[Bug 7746] <link rel=search> should be used instead of <input type=search> for backwards-compatibility and beacuse the search input type poses no additional input restrictions.

<input type=search> is just as backwards-compatible: it degrades into <input
type=text>.

Changing the style of an element based on whether there's a <link> with a
particular rel pointing to it seems like needless complexity. Also, <input
type=search> is already shipped in at least one browser and there seems to be
some content using it.
