Subject: Proposal for Radio Button grouping

As you probably know, ODF currently defines the exclusive selection 
semantics of radio controls based on radio controls with the same name, 
similar to how this is done in HTML:

ODF 1.1, section 11.3.14:    "The <form:radio> element describes controls 
which act like check boxes except that when several radio buttons share 
the same control name they are mutually exclusive. When one button is on, 
all of the other buttons with the same name are off. If no radio button is 
initially on, the way in which the application chooses which button to 
turn on initially is undefined."

On today's ODF TC call the following ODF 1.2 proposal was discussed:   

This proposal would add a form:group-name attribute to the form:radio 
element in section 11.3.14, as an alternative way to specify grouped radio 
buttons.  It is not stated how to resolve situations where both grouping 
methods are in simultaneous, possibly contradictory use.

The Proposer has requested a vote on this proposal for next Monday.  If 
the Accessibility SC has any comments, please send them to the TC by
