    If you did this, then wouldn't it be a bit confusing as to whether the wrapped text was a new line item in the list or a continuation of the previous item? It would seem to me that not wrapping text is intentional to maintain distinct separation between list items. If I were the user selecting an item from the list, it would look to me as though your wrapped text was a different selectable item in the list box.
