So I started doing this (I'll push an incomplete patch below) but I realised I
have no idea what white-space:plaintext means, so I actually can't write the
relevant style rules. In particular it's not clear to me what it means when
applied to <textarea>, since CSS generally applies to DOM contents and the
contents of replaced elements like <textarea> aren't affected by it, and it's
not clear to me what it means on <pre> when <pre> has explicit <br>s and
implicit line breaks from line-wrapping and explicit line breaks from embedded
newlines or double-newlines.

What behaviour do you want to require from browsers?
