Easily selecting all controls that are invalid irrespective of UA UI  
decisions? It's tricky. Thinking about it some more I do not really like  
the :invalid-ui idea either. It is too unpredictable. Having more  
concretely defined pseudo-classes and allowing UAs to play around with  
them in their UA stylesheet seems better.

Simon suggested having something like :dirty that would select controls  
that have been edited or are in a form after it has been attempted to  
submit that form.
