There is a proposal to do that at
https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/171 but it has not meaningfully
progressed thus far.

Note also that some sites go out of their way to localize form
controls to fit the language of the site. To the extent they will use
libraries rather than <input> and friends. Arguably they're wrong, but
there are cases where that does make sense. And let's not forget that
users often forget to set these settings properly, that's probably
part of the reason why sites do that kind of thing.
