I almost believed the same. However, I took a closer look at the current  
WF 2 spec. There's no mention of multiple email addresses.

AFAIK, Opera 9.10 for Linux has complete support for Web Forms 2 (with  
various small bugs and accessibility issues, given it's a new technology).  
I have tested input type=email and it works only with a single email
