Well, paired with a little javascript that unhides that notification text
'Thank you for your submission' it works wonders on keeping that complaints
inbox clean :)

Seriously though, sometimes when values in a complicated form have already been
given it might eventually be of use to rather reset the damn thing then to do
something stupid - like transmitting.

I know that the designer should probably rethink the interface just then ... but
it _might_ be a valid application - the only one that comes to mind.
