Uncontrolled select support?

See original GitHub issue

Hi, the defaultValue attribute for <select> does not work in preact: .

Switching to a selected attribute (in <option> ) seems to work but causes some strange behaviour on late renderings (no sandbox yet).

To be clear for anyone looking to work on this, defaultValue on <select> is not a DOM prop (MDN) but is something React supports, so support for defaultValue on <select> needs to be in preact/compat.

<option> does have a defaultSelected property (MDN), but not sure what React does with this.

Hi, i just encountered this bug with defaultvalue on the select and i have a stackblitz example here: I used defaultValue on the select, but no luck. Or am I missing something?
