Oh sorry, I've just realised you were re-enforcing my points that we
require formatting hints if you use input type=text today.

Yes, that is my point, and that with WF2 you can't have formatting
hints because it will confuse the users of WF2 clients.  Hence this
does not degrade on legacy clients.
