In the email app there are cases where the user is entering something like a username which may look like an email address (ex: "foo@example.com") but may not actually be an email address (ex: just "foo").  In those cases it would be handy to be able to have the keyboard include the "@" sign but not force the validation logic of type=email on us.

It is my understanding that inputmode (http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/forms.html#input-modalities:-the-inputmode-attribute) should work for this purpose.  However, LayoutManager seems to use inputMode only for extremely limited purposes (allowing "digit" to alter type=number, and "digit" and "numeric" and "-moz-sms" to override type=text).
