In some user agent implementations, moving the focus to a radio button in a group of radio buttons is sufficient to select it and therefore to change the value of the control. There are situations in which the application's author has good reason to prevent this behavior so that the user can review the options easily without changing the value. In this situation, a non-standard keyboard interface is needed; we don't want the native keyboard interface of the control to be applied.
