reviewed. some comments:
- would be good to have access to the data ( mongodb (or a dump of it)) 
so we can independently assess the numbers or test. It would also be 
useful to the actual sites owners that were tested. Currently, we and 
they don’t know who was tested and the actual results.
- I agree that automation of these tests can not be done on all web 
sites, but if 50% were automated, then it is a big saving of time, 
especially if this survey is repeated.
- yes, html5.3 needs to be defined as the new standard and that would 
resolve the issue of the html form for email addresses. However, even at 
standard level, it will take time to get it deployed. But that is not 
the end of it. it just scratches the surface. The fact that a browser 
accepts UTF8 on the left side of an email address by complying to 
HTML5.3 does not warrant that the processing of the form will work. In 
fact, it may be the inverse since the developer would receive UTF8 data 
it does not expect as the previous html was not enabling utf8 to be 
received from the user filling the form.  On this, I would suggest to 
include the URL of the deployment page (while seems not updated since 
sep2018) for html5.3 in the report, so people can see the state of the 
deployment of this issue: 

Regards, Marc.
