Let's first decide what numbers is meant by number type.
Good luck with that. Everyone seems to feel it's a different thing.
Also a special case is the number of a credit card and any number with leading zero. Because leading zero no have significance and will always be clipped in numbers. For such cases, it is necessary always use text or masked text.
And yet people consistently try to use <input type="number"> for these. For credit card numbers it's silly, but for hours/minutes it's not unreasonable, if only to get the little up/down spinners.
Yes, the fact that people are trying to shoehorn a wide variety of quite different use cases into <input type="number"> is unfortunate.
