> Pros/cons for a |placeholder| property and attribute on TEXTAREA?

As I understand it, it was sort of an accident that Safari supports  
placeholder on anything other than search fields, but there's no  
reason it shouldn't apply to all text input fields including textarea.

I've just filed https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=21248
