I object to the inclusion of the <textArea> feature in SVG Tiny 1.2. It 
appears to be no more than a poor man's HTML, dramatically lacking in 
semantics and presentational controls. It is already possible to achieve 
any effect that <textArea> introduces, using <foreignObject> and embedded 
content styled using CSS' rich formatting properties.

Please remove the <textArea> feature from SVG Tiny 1.2.
