Comment (by prionkor):

 Replying to [comment:1 boonebgorges]:
 > Are there attributes other than 'required' that one might reasonably
 want to add to the `<select>` element? (Like maybe `'data-'` attributes of
 some sort?) Maybe we could add a `select_atts` param, which would accept
 an array of additional attributes:

 Yes, so far its the best idea and I usually implement it this way. instead
 of creating new key for `required` lets just have an `attr` key or
 `attribute` key which accepts and array of key value pairs which later
 because the select element attributes.

 This idea can also be used on other select function throughout WP core.
