Yes please.

I just stumbled on this today and was surprised at the lack of @pattern on
textareas. 

In my case, it's used for a setting where users enter a "template" (similar to
the values that the CSS property grid-template accepts) to control the layout
of panes. So I wanted to only allow certain letters and line breaks. My use
case was quite specific, but I guess it's part of a more general category of
entering structured data in textareas (any kind of regular language that can be
matched by a regexp).
