Hm. In my build from the 15th it does. Did that change recently?

True enough. I'd like to think my ideas for the simpler controls (<input type='text'>, <textarea> and buttons) would at least be mostly how things turn out. But if a CSS spec later on contradicts me I'll just change it. That's the price you pay for trying to stay ahead of the curve :)
