The phrase "The size attribute gives the number of characters that, in a  
visual rendering, the user agent is to allow the user to see while editing  
the element's value." is phrased misleadingly like a UA conformance  
criterion even though it is not. It doesn't account for the fact that a  
stylesheet may allow the user to see more or fewer characters, or that, in  
a proportional font, the number of characters seen will vary based on the  
control value.
