Note that the Repetition Model hasn’t been included.

I hope that the Repetition Model will be included, this was an awesome idea to avoid the repetitif development of WebForms …
I also didn’t see news about input type date, datetime, time, search, and stuff, these were also great ideas.
All these stuff seems to be partially integrated by Opera, WebKit and Firefox …

The repetition model is likely out due to it only supporting a small subset of the use cases. If we want to keep some declarative solution for that more research probably needs to be done.

As for the new input types, those are still very much alive. Not everything has been migrated into HTML5 yet.

Sorry, but I wish the repetition model would never see the light. If I wanted something like this I would use javascript or server-side code, not declarative tags trying to simulate a real programming language.
