Details

The specifications ask us to filter invalid values showed by the list attribute. The current implementation do not do that.
IIRC, Jonas thinks we should not do that because authors will not be able to put in the list beginnings of value like area codes for telephone numbers.
IMO, we should do that because I don't think list should be used to provide a part of a value and selecting an invalid value might be confusing for the user (form being un-submittable because of that). However, we might want to not filter the values if the form element has novalidate attribute. But that could be weird because of the un-consistency.
I think this should block final or betaN so we do not ship a buggy feature.
