What about "multi-email", "email-list" or "email-addresses"? The last
one is the one I most like, and the most explicit, with the only
(minor) drawback that it's the longest. Anyway, that's just a
suggestion. BTW, the same argument could be made on type="email",
since someone could easily think it expects an entire message.
