CFINPUT type="radio" w/ "value" requires "label" - Macromedia ColdFusion

On a Flash form, when you specify type='radio' and value='whatever', the value of the 'value' attribute will be displayed as a label if no 'label' attribute is specified. I got around this by specifying label=''. Bummer <sarcasm>Hopefully this is just a problem in the 7.0 Beta version and will be fixed before the production release</sarcasm>...

    Why do you want multiple radio buttons with no labels, how does the user
    know what each radio button means?

    With that said, this is the intended behavior. And if you don't want a
    label, you are doing the right thing by setting an empty label="" for the
    radio button.

    Why do you want multiple radio buttons with no labels, how does the user know
    what each radio button means? Imagine that I have 3 options from which the
    user can select (in this case requesting vendor quotes): Give me a price quote
    for: (o) EXACTLY [InputBOX] Units (o) [InputBOX] Units plus next [InputBOX]
    Price Breaks (o) All Price breaks from [InputBOX] Units to [InputBOX] Units
    Now you?ll see my dilemma. In any case, it is bad for two reasons: (1) It
    departs in functionality from normal HTML radio buttons in which the 'value'
    attribute is used to differentiate between radio buttons in a group (same name,
    different value) and not to provide descriptive inline text. In other words to
    pass the ?value? to the receiving form. (2) It makes a wholly inaccurate
    assumption that the user wants ANY label on the radio button. There are any
    number of option values or layout choices which might make this a bad thing
    (TM). In addition, there is already a 'label' attribute which allows
    specification of the label to be displayed-- let it do its job. I don't think
    that insisting that a user have a label on his radio buttons makes any sense.
    I left out the OPTIONAL ?label? attribute because I didn?t want a label, not
    because I wanted the software to guess at one for me. BTW, if this is the
    intended behavior, and I argue strongly against that, DOENT IT! Which is
    more intuitive, ?leave ?label? off, get no label? or ?want no label, specify
    ?label=??? otherwise you?ll get ?value? as label??
