So I have to do <option>Foo</option>
Repeat that 1000 times, and I have massively polluted my DOM with elements.
Also I want transfer Foo which is 3 bytes, but then I have to transfer
opening and closing tags and that takes lots of bandwidth when you
multiply that by 1000.

You should be able make the client fetch the datalist from the server.
And the server send a CSV or something "Alice,Bob,Clare,Dave,Eve,..."
