It does, and I wish more Web designers understood that. ;)

This became popular with form designers where they need to avoid having 
a default answer, indicating that some action must be taken for a 
control that requires a value.

But over the years I've seen many forms where that lead-in entry is used 
instead of a having any descriptive label next to it, and often without 
error-checking to ensure some other value was chosen anyway so they've 
made it useless in spite of themselves.
