Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: Pretty much what Tab said. Specifically: 

> Can textarea element have the option to automatically expand the height of the
> text area when lines of input text exceeds the rows of the text area? Under
> some circumstance that offers better user experience. Indeed there are
> Javascript hacks to achieve that.

Nothing in the spec disallows browsers from doing that today.


> 4.10.7.2.12 The placeholder attribute:
> Can the placeholder text support partial fading? i.e, when user clicks an
> input field that has placeholder text, the placeholder text stays but fades a
> bit, and it disappears only after user start typing input texts.

Same here, the browsers are allowed to do this already.


> New feature recommendation: Lightbox
> Lightbox has been used frequently on web pages to open up a new UI overlay
> without loading a new page, which is more user friendly and efficient. However
> that is done by using rather complicated CSS and Javascript. It will be great
> that lightbox can be implemented simply as a html tag.

This will be handled by <dialog> if we add it (currently blocked on the
chairs).
