It's an input field, no textarea. Expected behaviour.
(Multi-field pastes don’t work well with textfields-need-activation either.)

No. Lynx is already too “slow”, especially with certain search
engines putting “invalid” cookie paths there, and the mandatory
some-seconds delay (which you can turn off or reduce, but only
globally, not per kind of message, AFAIK).
“It is inappropriate to require that a time represented as
seconds since the Epoch precisely represent the number of
seconds between the referenced time and the Epoch.”
