I gave good reasons why it's not - rendering details of form elements
are not (yet) CSS's responsibility at all.  Also, the current behavior
of "height: auto" is "do whatever the size='' attribute says", so it's
still the responsibility of the size='' attribute to define a value
that means "be as tall as you need to be".
