(Whiteboard: [parity-chrome][parity-stock])

Currently one is able to drag text-selection handles outside the bounds of an <input> and <textarea> when selecting text that spans more than the visible number of rows or columns defined. 

One would expect the element to scroll the remainder whilst continuing to expand the on-going selection; either via columns or rows.

See attached URL for a test-case; begin a selection and drag a handle outside the bounds of the text-area/

Re-summarizing as this is partially bug 780301. Perhaps this bug can track the scrolling of the elements to grow the selection?

See the comment in made in bug 767799. I think with the patch I made in bug 669816 (which basically mimics text selection in desktop), this would not be a problem.
