--- Comment #5 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch> ---
The directionality of <textarea> basically determines only the directionality
sent in form submission (if dirname="" is given) and the directionality of the
title="" tooltip and placeholder="" message.

I'm fine with defaulting to inherited if the element is strictly empty, but
then shouldn't we also do that for regular elements with dir=auto?
