        This is helpful for other reasons too. Currently type="number" is great and shows the correct keyboard on mobile devices. However any attempt to set a partial value, or use any of the selection properties/methods fails. Having the inputmode attribute available would mean we can choose the best input device keyboard but not suffer the side-effects of setting the field as number.
