Search field input events

All other changes to the text of a type="search" input field trigger an input event (inserting or deleting characters, pasting into the field, spell-checker corrections, etc), but clicking on the cancel button within the field does not.

The attached file "searchfield.html" demonstrates this: it contains a search field and logs all input events fired from that search field.

Reproduced in Google Chrome and Safari 4.0.4 (531.21.10).

Confirmed with r54103.

Also, potentially related, if you mousedown on the cancel button, and mouseup on the cancel button the mousedown event will fire, but the mouseup event will not fire.

The description needs update.

We should clearly be firing the input event here. Whether we should fire an explicit cancel event is another question. It's not needed in my opinion.
