 @Wordpreso welcome to Trac and thanks for your report.

 This is intentional, not a bug; see the related changeset

 Following the argumentations in the related ticket #15080 the main concern
 was about browsers validation inconsistencies and errors. That was 7 years
 ago though. It is certainly possible to re-visit that decision and allow
 HTML5 validation but I'm not so sure about the browsers state on this
 regard. Is browsers validation fully and correctly working for all input
 fields in all languages, all date formats, all currency formats, all phone
 number formats, etc.? Is providing a pattern working in all browsers?
