Are you suggesting a javascript that automatically sets the focus to
the next segment when a certain character count has been reached?

Definitely not. Actually I withdraw the suggestion about checking sizes -
and yes, use max length (3, 2, 3).

The main point is that designers will want to do this kind of thing so a
redesign isn't the best answer; the question is how to provide the
information to a user who doesn't see the layout.
