In an implementation POV, having to check for the option's value to filter them
from the datalist option's list may be a perf hit. However, it could be
possible to specify @list should ignore options with empty values so these
options will not be shown to the user.
In specification POV, changing when the options are filtered should not be a
big deal (except if datalist is more heavily used in the specs than i thought).

CCing Jonas as he is the one who pointed this issue.
