It makes UI sense that the user should be able to undo any input. OTOH I 
like the ability to have a radiogroup in an initial state where no 
option is selected. A solution could be to define that radiogroups are 
*always* required. In that case there is no *valid* state that the user 
cannot return to. If the author wants "no selection" to be valid input, 
then it should be expressed as an seperate option like "(o) None of the 
above".
