There is already a side effect for clicking on a check box--
it becomes checked! As I've read the draft, the "On Off"
switch should be just like a check box with the icons of
an empty square and a square with a cross replaced by other
icons. That is properly handled by adding control of the
graphic representation of form inputs to style sheets, not
by adding a whole new input type. Correct me if I'm wrong!
