    v2 v3  
    1 "seems like overkill since a user can simply clear out the field value manually. Plus, clearing the input would make the input invalid if the field is required. It’s best to encourage users to pick a date, not clear the field."
    2  It is the reasonable thought behind the removing of the clear button.
    3 
    4 Not all  fields are required. Asuming an empty field might be invalid is wrong!

    6 "a user can simply clear out the field value manually"
    7  It is not a good usable choice, while a user clears out the input, the calendar can be an obstruction,  the input sometimes might be covered by the calendar.
    8 
    9 Most of us use the calendar to avoid wrong format type and it is very important don't let the user think about the right date format we want (and to write it)

    11 "It’s best to encourage users to pick a date, not clear the field."  (?!)
    12 ''' The best is to encourage users to not use the date input field at all. So, since they can choose a date by touch or by click,  they shoud be able to clear the date by touch and by click too.'''
    13 
    14 It is better to let the developers choose what is invalid field or not :)
    15 
    16 The clear option should be part of the datepicker.
     1 - double post, sorry
