My coworker Elliott Sprehn noticed that we (Blink) still have
'user-select' prefixed, and wondered why.

Some investigation showed that IE10, modern FF, and modern
Webkit/Blink all support the 'user-select' property.  Specifically,
they all support the 'none', 'text', and 'all' values, while FF and IE
additionally support 'element'.  (The original spec in which 'element'
appeared was very unclear, but it appears to be used to "trap" wide
selections inside of an element, like what form inputs do.)

Could we please add 'user-select' and these four values back to the UI spec?
