number_field tag does not accept the same options as text_field_tag

number_field_tag does not accept the size or maxlength options; the max option for number_field_tag is used to control the size of the field. According to W3 http://www.w3.org/TR/html-markup/input.number.html , placeholder should be accepted, but I don’t find that this works in the way it works for text_field_tag.
