EsLint Plugin Lit A11y: no-invalid-change-handler

Enforce usage of @blur over/in parallel with @change on select menu elements for accessibility. @blur should be used instead of @change, unless absolutely necessary and it causes no negative consequences for keyboard only or screen reader users. @blur is a more declarative action by the user: for instance in a dropdown, using the arrow keys to toggle between options will trigger the @change event in some browsers. Regardless, when a change of context results from an @blur event or an @change event, the user should be notified of the change unless it occurs below the currently focused element.
