Matthew, 

Thank you for the constructive feedback on the CSS UI working drafft.

The summary specifically states that the *rendering* behaviors can be
deprecated.

Yes, you are correct, the CSS UI working draft says nothing of what the form
processor makes use of.

As stated in the Scope section

 http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-userint#scope

"what specifically is believed to be outside the scope of CSS, or better
suited to document structure rather than style and therefore not addressed by
this proposal:
  * Form semantics, including, but not limited to, submission, resetting,
naming, what determines being successful or valid, and how to process form
data."

> Just add:
> [processor-]reference: "name of element";

That could certainly work to solve the problem, but I think the
Forms-Semantics needs you brought up are more appropriately addressed by the
excellent work being done in the Forms subgroup of the HTML working group:
