<MikeSmith> Hixie: I don't understand http://html5.org/r/6413  
<MikeSmith> the spec already states that maxlength on input@type=number is not
valid  
<MikeSmith> so validator.nu currently emits an error for it  
<MikeSmith> this change would cause it to emit a warning in addition to an
error  
<MikeSmith> unless I'm misunderstanding something  
<MikeSmith> but
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/number-state.html#number-state
lists maxlength under "The following content attributes must not be specified
and do not apply to the element"  
<MikeSmith> and
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/the-input-element.html#input-type-attr-summary
also indicates that maxlength is now allowed on input@type=number  
<MikeSmith> if the intent is to actually make it conforming but obsolete, it
seems like those parts of the spec should be changed as well  
<zcorpan> MikeSmith: "should not" means it's allowed if you have a good reason  
<MikeSmith> OK  
<MikeSmith> but if so, those two parts of the spec should be changed  
<zcorpan> yeah  
<MikeSmith> I don't see how otherwise we can make any changes to the validation
behavior
