FWIW, I think the 'execute' attribute is optional, but only the JEP 
author can say for sure.

And I think the intent of the second sentence is something like this:

    If the <actions/> possesses the "execute" attribute, that value
    is the default button or option. If the <actions/> does not
    possess the "execute" attribute, there is no default button
    or option.

Matt, what say you?
