Chromium and Firefox have shouldShowPlaceHolderWhenFocused==true behavior
in all platforms.
Web authors can specify shouldShowPlaceHolderWhenFocused==false behavior
with CSS if the default is shouldShowPlaceHolderWhenFocused==true, but they
can't specify shouldShowPlaceHolderWhenFocused==true behavior if the
default is shouldShowPlaceHolderWhenFocused==false.

Mac, Windows, and EFL all return true in this function.

Are Qt and GTK+ (and other) ports intentionally returning false
in shouldShowPlaceholderWhenFocused?  Or is this just an oversight due to
the fact the default implementation returned false?
