There are a lot of exceptions. Can you think of cases were it is not reasonable as currently written?

All the best

I don't think its realistic on today's web to reverse EVERY action, especially in a DOT release of WCAG. It would be a momentous change and huge requirement.

I think as technology improves web sites will provide more and more undo actions because its good usability. But we are not there yet.

 I agree that undo on text-entry (like a wysiwyg editor) is useful, but saying that you could go back a page (or three) and then undo changes in a text area? That's another matter.
