I think "Submit" would be a much better default.

It might be useful to be able to add extra buttons to the form but in
most cases I find it better to have one submit button and a series of
hyperlinks css styled as buttons.

For example a form that saves a DB record at...
...would save its contents to recordID=1.
A "cancel" button would link to...
...a "delete" button would link directly to...
...which presents a confirmation form. Finally a "duplicate" button
links to...

I'm sure there are usecases for multiple submit buttons but I haven't
yet needed them.
