Configure DateInput auto-tab behavior
To my users the auto-tab behavior confusing because when they type '1/', focus auto-tabs to the day section (US Format), but when they type '8/', focus is on the year because it already auto-tabbed after the 8 and then they have to back up to get focus to the day.

I would like to be able to configure the auto-tab behavior so that the DateInput only auto-tabs when they type '/' or when a section is full (i.e. disable smart auto-tabbing).

To add to this, if the user presses / and nothing has been entered into the day it should not auto-forward to the next field until something has been entered.  If something has been entered it should forward to the next section.  This can work with auto-tab enabled or disabled.

e.g. Type, 12 then press / it's on the year.  With heavy data entry users it's common for them to repeat the use of the "/" after the entry of the number even if it's completed. 

Data entry shouldn't have to change the way they enter data based on if it's 2 digits, or 1.
