Improving the admin UI for Hierarchical Taxonomies

For hierarchical taxonomies like categories on the edit post in the admin pages, the terms are listed with checkboxes in a scrollable box which has a set height of 200px. If you only have a few terms then the box ends up being much bigger than needed wasting lots of vertical screen real estate. This is particularly frustrating if you create multiple hierarchical taxonomies.
I propose changing the height of the box to use css max-height instead so that the box collapses if you only have a few terms.
See the screengrabs at he post I've written here.
I've attached a preliminary patch too.
Obviously IE6 doesn't support css max-height. Do we need to use an IE hack for this or are we OK if the category box height doesn't restrain in IE6?
