           Summary: input type search : onChange on plateform actions

In the spec for the new search input type, it is said :

"The difference between the Text state and the Search state is primarily
stylistic: on platforms where search fields are distinguished from regular text
fields, the Search state might result in an appearance consistent with the
platform's search fields rather than appearing like a regular text field."

And :
"The input and change events apply."

I suppose it should be specified too that whatever platform search field action
is implemented should trigger the change events.

I think it is an issue because of the chromium implementation of input type
search : A cross is drawed that let empty the input value on click, but it does
not fire the onChange event.

The problem may be the mention that the difference is "primarily stylistic". It
sounds like it can be "secondarily functional", but give no indications about
