[Bug 13556] why does the 'placeholder label option' on a select have to be the first 'option' within the list of options? could it be the first option with value="" within the list of options instead?

The whole point of a placeholder is that it's displayed by default.  The first
<option> in a <select> is displayed by default, so it's the only one that makes
sense to become a placeholder if you're attempting to optimize for backward
compat.
