Maybe <select required><option value selected disabled>Choose one...  
should be allowed?

The spec allows <select required><option value>Choose one...<option  
selected>Foo. Maybe it should require the label option to be selected by  
default (either implicitly or explicitly) when the select has required?

The spec currently doesn't require there to be any select label option if  
the required attribute is present on select.
