This is a feature to ensure that different input tag types can be
styled without having to use [type="text"] CSS selectors that are not
supported by IE.

Not by default, but it is there to please your CSS designer that wants
to make the site work in IE.

You can have an arbitrary number of classes per tag (just send #class:
multiple times), so I don't see the issue here.
