Inline Edit: Single line/multi-line?

Hey, folks,

The Inline Edit functional requirements distinguish between editing  
simple text and editing large amounts of text. Technically we've been  
interpreting this distinction to be single-line vs. multi-line. So  
far, we've only implemented single-line editing.

Is this a reasonable interpretation? Or should the notion of 'simple  
text' include support for multiple lines of text? If someone pastes  
text that includes a carriage return into a simple inline edit, should  
it resize to be multiple lines?
