I have no idea what you're trying to do here. If you're trying to prefill
the _select_ widget, then you can do that to any select widget, whether in
a repetition template or not. If you're trying to prefixx a _form_, then
you do that at the form level, and the spec describes how it works for
repetition fields. I have no idea what you would mean by a "data"
attribute on an <input> element, though.
