[whatwg] Why children of datalist elements are barred from constraint validation?

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.
