[whatwg] @autosubmit on <select>

Seeing how the <select> element is mostly used in the wild, I think an
'autosubmit' attribute on the <select> element will increase accessibility
without any kind of fallback to an ordinary submit button.
Seeing that having an onchange event on a <select> element triggering
submit on its form is such an oft-used solution, I think WF2 would provide
a good solution for future web forms and their accessibility by providing
an 'autosubmit' attribute that serves this purpose.
If such an attribute or mechanism have been discussed before, I'm sorry; I
don't read this list regularly -- it's much too crowded for that.
