combobox and textbox are different roles in the accessibility APIs.  For
example, in UIA
Edit Control Type:  Edit controls enable a user to view and edit a simple line
of text without rich formatting support.  (similar to <input type=text>)

ComboBox Control Type: A combo box is a list box combined with a static control
or an edit control that displays the currently selected item in the list box
portion of the combo box. (similar to <select>)

When the author adds a list attribute, it adds a dropdown list to the control,
which makes it meet the definition of the combobox.
