Related notes:

* List lacks unique supported properties for subclasses to inherit.

* The definition of list is a group of *non-interactive* list items. (emphasis added). Both menu and listbox are interactive groups.

* Menu and listbox each subclass select, "a widget that allows the user to make selections from a set of choices." So the list/set nature is already present.

Setting the state to "Pending Review." It's a two-line change (the third line is for removing directory as a superclass of tablist. For the purpose of this review request, please ignore that third line. If approved I'll commit just the list-related changes to resolve this action.)
