If you want it done like that, then at least use type="button".  That 
way, users of legacy UAs don't get confused by a strange text box that 
they don't know what to put into it, but rather end up with a button 
that does nothing when clicked.  Neither are ideal from a usability 
perspective, but the button seems like better graceful degradation.

However, <button type="add"> already does that, so I'd just leave it as is.
