Actually, that is generally not true. The fact that you have to control-click
to select several items makes it hard enough that I think many sites don't
consider it an option.

I am however fine with waiting with this and seeing what author feedback we
get. The situation here is different from <select required> since we'd be
loosening the restricted behavior, not tightening it.
