+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #20720 +++

The remove() method from Interface Element [
http://www.w3.org/TR/dom/#dom-childnode-remove ] is overwritten with The
remove() method from Interface HTMLSelectElement [
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-DOM-Level-1/level-one-html.html#ID-33404570 ] for the
select nodes.
Today, I have to use something like this:
window.HTMLSelectElement && function(HTMLSelectElementPrototype)
{
    var removeOption = HTMLSelectElementPrototype.remove;

    HTMLSelectElementPrototype.remove = function()
    {
        if (arguments[0] >= 0) removeOption.call(this, arguments[0]);
        else this.parentNode && this.parentNode.removeChild(this);
    };
}(window.HTMLSelectElement.prototype);

It would be better to change HTMLSelectElement Interface so that without
arguments it used remove method like Element Interface.
