[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)

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale:

Currently the spec doesn't say if there should be filtering or not — it just
says that these are the suggested values and leaves the UI to the UA.

The idea here is to provide a combo box, not to provide a "Google suggest"-like
interface. The latter would probably be better handled by a pure JS solution
with callbacks.

I would recommend that browser vendors play with offering different attributes
(using the vendor-extension syntax!) to experiment with what the best way to
extend this feature would be, and report back. We can then update the feature
appropriately.
