I don't care for that part much. I think it is important to allow some  
elements to be in one state and others in another at the outset,  
without having to give them different classes. Like you can with  
"checked" on radio buttons and checkboxes.

My only thought about this is that 'target" is probably not the best  
property name for use with anchors, unless you mean to use the  
anchor's "target" attribute to store its initial state.
