Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: 

> 1. Your own example of email address autocomplete, under section "The multiple
> attribute". Here, you conveniently let only the email address be added to the
> textfield, but that's neither user-friendly nor what current email clients like
> Thunderbird do. Instead, they add "Arthur Dosh <art@example.net>" instead of
> "art@example.net", but that would not work in your example with the labels.

If you want to submit more than e-mail addresses, then type=email isn't for
you, so this doesn't seem like a big problem here. You can do this with
type=text already.

That doesn't seem like an autocomplete widgets. If there's some state beyond
the value, then how is the user supposed to type it in? The idea of
autocomplete here is that the feature just allows the user to avoid having to
type something in that they would normally be able to type anyway.
