> Hey TJ, I understand what type=date is supposed to offer the user and agree that using Modernizr to detect whether the element is supported and provide a fallback but my more direct question is, would HTML 5 offer the ability to allow a user to use either the date picker or enter the date manually if the type=date attribute is specified. Something like for example <input type=date editable=true />

HTML5 doesn't specify anything about how the date input is presented.
It's entirely up to the browser to decide if they want to allow the
user to type a date in, or just use a datepicker, or what.
