Option to force selection from the list

I want to force my users to make a selection from the dropdown and not just type what they want. A 'not-select' option would therefore be convenient. This would result in the input field being cleared if nothing was selected from the list, e.g. when the field was blurred.

This is actually not easy to get right since we may not know the list of valid options at the time the input field is blurred (asynchronous responses, search delays, etc.). You can build this logic by listening to the change event if you want.
