I’m pretty sure it was removed from the HTML5 specification simply due 
to lack of implementations. It would be misleading to keep a feature in 
a W3C Recommendation when major vendors have been reluctant to implement 
it so far, so that authors trying to use it would be seriously disappointed.

The inputmode attribute is still in HTML 5.1 Nightly and will 
undoubtedly be declared standard, if there will sufficiently many 
sufficiently good implementations.
