Currently specs state:
"The first submit button in a form is the form's default button"
I think this is not useful.
Forms often have multiple submit buttons that perform actions on form data
and are not suitable as a default button ("remove this element", and
others like add, upload, lookup, etc.). In such cases LAST submit button
is more likely to be suitable as the default submit button.
Although there are forms, like PayPal login page, where neither first or
last submit button is suitable as default (first is creation of new
account and last is cancel).
I think it's important to add means of specifying which submit button is
