Issue description

Version: 31
OS: windows 8

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. go to
2. check the email/url/tel etc inputs
3. input type info not exposed in IA2

What is the expected output? 
see Mozilla implementation bug

Please use labels and text to provide additional information.

@dominic: Is anyone looking into this issue?
No, please feel free to implement this.

We should expose the input type in Blink, add it as a new string attribute in ax_enums.idl and then map it to the IA2 attribute on Windows.

Please also refactor BrowserAccessibilityAndroid::AndroidInputType() to implement this the correct way. We shouldn't have done it by checking the html attribute directly in content/browser code; that check should be abstracted away in Blink.


I'm looking on this from 2 weeks ago.
Here is WIP.
And I'll update it today.
Sorry about that. I should have commented here.
