What I describe would be possible with this widget, if you just add that one
event. That's why I made this request.

Why?

I have actually done that, I have implemented such a widget, and I have tried
to implement it based on <input list="">, and what blocked me was this bug,
this one event missing.
Because of this bug, I had to implement the whole autocomplete dropdown by
myself from scratch, including all key and mouse event handling, scrolling,
focus, sizing.

I gave 3 real-world examples.
