Steps to reproduce

On caniuse.com, <datalist> is marked as technically supported, but is noted that in IE10+ (including Edge), it has "significantly buggy behavior". http://caniuse.com/#search=datalist

The support seems buggy enough that I think it’s more fair to categorize <datalist> support as not really being present at all until these issues are addressed. http://playground.onereason.eu/2013/04/ie10s-lousy-support-for-datalists/

e.g. https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/status/datalistelement/ should be changed to say “Preview Release” IMO
