Expected behavior
Pressing the space key should open the dropdown list when the dropdown has focus and the dropdown list is not open.

What is the motivation / use case for changing the behavior?
Mirrors behavior for the native HTML select element (and other similar controls, e.g. angular material's select).

Please tell us about your environment:
Windows 10
