I would like UAs to just make it impossible for none of the radio  
buttons in a set to be chosen. "Exactly one radio button should be set  
in the group at all times"  
<http://developer.gnome.org/projects/gup/hig/1.0/ 
controls.html#controls-radio-buttons>. If the author doesn't specify  
which one should be chosen initially, the browser should pre-select the  
first one, just as it does for SELECT elements
