           Summary: The text here says that an input element is always
                    mutable and then says that “similarly” the user
                    agent should not allow the user to modify the
                    element's value or checkedness. The sense seems to be
                    backwards. Not being allowed to modify something is

Comment:
The text here says that an input element is always mutable and then says that
“similarly” the user agent should not allow the user to modify the
element's value or checkedness. The sense seems to be backwards. Not being
allowed to modify something is immutability. Mutability is not similar to
immutability. It’s opposite.
