sicking: The idea is that you would point all the places that affect the
checkbox at the same command, so that the buttons, keyboard shortcuts, etc, all
end up driven by the same underlying checkbox logic, and the author doesn't
have to worry about it. (This isn't yet in the spec, admittedly.) The behaviour
you describe for the Window menu is a radio button menu item, not a checkbox.

For checkboxes, I could maybe see an argument for letting authors check and
uncheck things. For radio buttons, though, that's just a pain. Surely you agree
that radio buttons should be automatic?

I've fixed the definition of the activation behaviour (so it doesn't fire a
second click event, d'oh). It is still unlike the <input> element in that the
.checked value isn't changed until after the click event has fired (and not
been canceled), though.
