Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change

The problem is that if we strip out <option> elements with no value=""
attribute, you can't reuse a <select>.

In practice, you already have to do everything you describe for <select>, as
far as I can tell.

However, I don't feel that strongly about this. If the perf cost (presumably
only an issue while a user is editing an <input> -- which doesn't seem like
it'll happen often anyway) and implementation cost is really that high, then
reopen and I'll simplify it. But that would make the language rather
inconsistent. As it is now, you can implement <option> in a way that abstracts
this out, and then <select> and <datagrid> can both use the data in the same
