“Each input element is either mutable or immutable. Except where otherwise
specified, an input element is always mutable. Similarly, except where
otherwise specified, the user agent should not allow the user to modify the
element's value or checkedness.” 

Is the second sentence referring to immutable objects? "Similarly" seems to say
that it applies to mutable elements, but contradicts the first sentence.
