Subject: Re: new wording for Undo

That's good, I'd just suggest keeping the object consistent, so say "previous step" rather than previous context.
[Jason] Applying this to David's proposal, the reference would be to "a previous step". Does this mean "any" or "at least one"? That is, does the option of moving back only one step satisfy the SC, or must the user be able to move back any number of previously completed steps before making a correction? This seems ambiguous in David's proposal, which is otherwise a considerable improvement over previous formulations.
