I wouldn't like trimming required fields, it would break some use cases like
<input type='password' required>: the user wouldn't be allowed to type
spaces-only password. Not that it would be a good idea, but the specs shouldn't
make this impossible. In addition, if we do the trimming the same way we do it
for <input type='email'> and <input type='url'> (ie, in the value sanitization
algorithm), that would modify passwords beginning or ending with spaces.

(In reply to comment #1)
> Maybe instead we should have a new feature <input trim>.

Sounds a good idea if the attribute doesn't apply to type=password and interact
directly with the value sanitization algorithm.
