textarea form control

Amaya is able to add a textarea control easily
It predefines the row and column attributes.
However it doesn't respect the action of the
row attribute which html4.01 spec says

rows = number [CN]
    This attribute specifies the number of visible text lines. Users should be able to enter more 
lines than this, so user agents should provide some means to scroll through the contents of the 
control when the contents extend beyond the visible area.

Amaya allows more rows to be added but simply extends the display
area instead of providing a scrolling mechanism....

Once again lawyerez (weasel words) say should instead of must  but to
make the system easier to use and test by authors, implementation
should be as close as possible to the 'norm' that convention has established.--
