When I tab through the form elements of a page, it would be nice if the form
elements I focus were always scrolled into view entirely.

Currently, they are only scrolled into view when they are entirely out of view,
but if (say) the bottom few pixels of a textarea are visible at the top of the
screen, it remains like that when I focus it from below using Shift-Tab.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
This is in the wrong component.
