Has the Method for using Custom form templates changed under 2.4

I'm trying to create a form using HTML5 input types. In my Custom form I use the following code

<label for="{$FormName}_Email">Email</label>
<input type="email" value="" name="Email" id="{$FormName}_Email" class="text">

However the form doesn't accept the input unless the input is generated using $dataFieldByName(Email)

Any Ideas?

Is there any difference between the html generated in $dataFieldByName and the html outputted from yours?

Other then SS changing the attribute order I don;t see a difference

SS generated input
<input type="text" value="" name="Email" id="BVRegistrationForm_BVRegistrationPage_Email" class="text">

my code:
<input type="email" value="" name="Email" id="{$FormName}_Email" class="text">

Input generated from my code
<input type="email" class="text" id="BVRegistrationForm_BVRegistrationPage_Email" name="Email" value="">

I have noticed this bug only presents itself under 2.4.1. 2.4.0 seems to work as expected. I've added a ticket
