I don't think that's really the argument. The argument is about
whether the long tail is going to be accessible (even if only a little
bit) or not at all.

That is, do we get

<select is=restricted-color-picker><option value=Red><option

styled as a restricted color picker or

<restricted-color-picker options="red blue"/>

styled as a restricted color picker but with no fallback semantics whatsoever.
