Checkmarks seem like they would be a pretty common need. I think it would be nice to have them pre-defined. But maybe we can loosen up the strictness to allow UAs to localize the mark used.

If the predefined types are not included, the UA is still free to define its own in its own UA style sheet, isn't it? So if we don't predefine common useful types, the result might be more differences between UAs for those. Or is there going to be a requirement for UAs to NOT define their own types within their UA stylesheet?
