Enhanced List Views - Inline Editing all Text fields (long/rich)

Lists & Actions

Currently, only Text Area field type (255 words and under) and inline editable; Long Text Area or Rich Text Area fields are not open to inline editing in the enhanced lists view, however they are inline editiable within the record.

I suggest that   long text area (as well as rich text area) fields are inline editable on enhanced list views for all custom and standard objects.

What if there were numerous Opportunity records that needed a description updated?
What if custom fields on custom objects, such as a "comment for reporting" field need a mass update?

There is a suggestion about just rich text area fields below, however both long should be enabled, then rich if possible:
