Are you sure about that? The HTML4.01 spec
(http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/interact/forms.html#edef-INPUT) says (re
input element attributes):

value = cdata [CA]
    This attribute specifies the initial value of the control. It is
optional except when the type attribute has the value "radio" or "checkbox".

This indicates to me that value is not a required attribute as far as the
spec is concerned.
