The way that datalist is currently designed (and implemented) is exemplary. The fact that (by design) it allows authors to nest a select element within it that shares the same option elements means that authors can safely begin to use this new feature.

I've written more about it here: http://adactio.com/journal/4272/

I'm trying (and failing) to understand why Jonas wants this feature removed.
