open the attached file and moving the cursor over the  radio box, it really
looks ugly, because the whole border disappears

Yes, it is bad on a black background. Presuming we do something to the border to 
show that the control is hovered over, we will always make it look bad on some 
background. So, maybe it would be better to not use the border to show hover, or 
maybe we just live with it and let the author change the style to suit their 
design goals? I'm not the guy to decide how it should look; Rod? Is this worth 
re-evaluating? 

NOTE: checkbox have the same issue since it has a similar :hover rule...

*If* (and I thought, it´s only for <A/>) :hover and Co are valid CSS for other 
elements, we don´t need to touch this. What´s with inverting surrounding color 
or background color...

CSS doesn't have a color 'invert' unfortunately; you have to specify an actual 
color (by name, RGB or numeric value).

Marking WONTFIX.
