If you do this, please make it optional!  Removing the submit button 
makes the jumpbox unusable by blind people who use screen readers, 
because they have to use the jumpform by pressing tab, down-arrow, 
down-arrow, etc., waiting after each key press to hear the selected 
value read aloud, then finally tab again to move on to the submit 
button.  A jumpbox without a button -- at least all the ones I've tested 
for accessibility -- will activate after the first down-arrow.  --Ben S.
