Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: The spec defines how default buttons are to be selected:

  
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/association-of-controls-and-forms.html#default-button

I agree that we should probably make it possible to explicitly pick a button as
the default. However, we've already added quite a lot to the forms part of the
spec and not all of it has been widely implemented yet, so I'd rather we wait
some more before adding such a feature.
