OK. It is worth thinking about. We have a similar issue with Spinner, which is also currently
non-editable. Maybe we should think about adding editor support to these components.

(have to attach textinput listeners, etc ..), is it even possible ?

You have to use an event listener to invoke the popup, since we can't know up front what event(s)
an application might want to use to trigger it. For example, some applications display suggestions
every time the text changes, but others do it only when the user enters a character (vs. deletes
one), some apps may want to show the list when the user presses the down arrow key, others
may do it when the user presses a button, etc.
