That is in fact _exactly_ how Mozilla implements the default look of radio 
buttons and check boxes (with the additional use of -moz-border-radius for the

``The inability of a user agent to implement part of this specification due to
the limitations of a particular device (e.g., non interactive user agents will
probably not implement dynamic pseudo-classes because they make no sense
without interactivity) does not imply non-conformance.'' -- Selectors, Sec13
