That's a good example.

Technically, that's not true - it is up to the app to decide how to trigger the suggestion
popup. This is often done as the user types, but it could also be done via another means such
as a "drop-down" button located next to the text input.

However, I think that adding editor support to ListButton will probably seem more natural
for those cases where you might want combo box behavior. I'll create a JIRA ticket for this.
