The ime-mode property seems problematic. 
http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-ui/#input-method-editor

Why should a web page get to disable my Pinyin character window? The example given was to disallow extended set characters in a form element, but it seems this would be better solved by either:

1) simple form validation in the app, or 
2) regex or charset acceptance patterns in the host language input. 

Allowing CSS to disable IMEs seems like overkill for this problem.
