OK - so you want to be sure that the options are there - even if
someone writes some extension that manipulates the element.  Hmm ...

Let's say that I am overriding render to add some formatting (or to
use some different templating) - then, I don't know about others but,
I would expect that the options are there already at that stage.  It
would be unintuitive if after 'populate' the element is not yet ready

Or let's say I want to delete some of the generated options - because
even if they come from the database I don't want them in the form -
then again I would expect that after the call to populate the element
is ready and I can delete from it the options that I don't want.

Isn't that what you would expect?
