4.10.7.1.9 Month state
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/single-page.html#month-state-type-month

The 'month' type doesn't allow for 13 month calendars (undecimber). The
limitation to Gregorian months doesn't work here because you can't convert a
month by itself to/from the Gregorian calendar.

Here's a use case: A web site provides a calendar of events for a synagogue in
Israel. The site groups events by month and lets the user pick the month to be
displayed using an <input type="month"> element. Being the site of a synagogue,
it has selected the Hebrew calendar by using the BCP 47 language tag
he-IL-u-ca-hebrew. The Hebrew calendar is a lunisolar calendar with years of 12
or 13 months. This means, the input element needs to be able to handle up to 13
months.
