[Bug 9785] Add a "filter" attribute. If set, the user agent will filter the datalist. If not, filter won't be filtered automatically (unless you do some sort of filtering by javascript or/and server-side)

The current situation (a mozNoFilter attribute) seems reasonable for
experimentation. Let's revisit this a few months after this has been shipped
widely, and see how people are using it. I think this is definitely an area
where we'll need to add new features to the platform, but I'm not sure it makes
sense to do it straight away  we don't want to go too far down a rabbit hole
without the reality check of author usage, the further we go the harder it will
be to climb back out, as it were (e.g. we'll end up with features that are
hardly used but used enough to require implementation everywhere, which is a
high burden on the platform).
