The "dominant baseline" of a text area is the last line, right? This already makes it very hard to vertically align labels with text areas in forms in the way that would be most useful. I think we really need 'first-baseline' (and 'last-baseline', I guess) as values for both 'vertical-align' and 'block-snap'.  Then you could use 'vertical-align: first-baseline' for when you have inline-block labels, and 'block-snap: first-baseline' for when you have floated labels.
