If the <select> element is part of an overlay, e.g. a lightbox or a menu or
something similar, it would be expected to stay within the boundaries of that
lightbox. The same probably applies for iframes.

At the very least it has to stay visible within the desktop (i.e. not go off
the bottom of the screen), or better even visible within the browser window.
