I just added a paragraph to the spec that makes the Opera/Gecko behaviour 

  <p>The first submit button in a form should be the default button.
  If the platform supports submitting a form implicitly (for example,
  on some platforms hitting the "enter" key while a text field is
  focussed implicitly submits the form), then when doing so the first
  submit button should be the one used to initiate form submission
  (and it will therefore be <a href="#successful">successful</a>).</p>
