The selectedIndex attribute for drop-down lists is supported by all major browsers, according to w3schools, but I couldn't find it on caniuse.com

This is from the DOM Level 1 spec from 1998, so this should be available everywhere like W3Schools says.

Just noticed the following in this repo's readme:
"Good/preferred pull requests for new features meet the following criteria:
[...]

  • Feature is not already widely supported (e.g. since IE6+, Firefox 2+, Chrome 1+ etc). This is because caniuse is intended to answer questions about mixed support, not to provide complete information on all web technologies."

selectedIndex is, clearly, too widely supported to pass that criterion. Should I do a pull request anyway?
