3.3.4 does include "or that submit user test responses", so it's
applicable I'd say.

I'm wondering if offering the user a way to bail out and start again
(with a different set of randomly generated but dependent questions)
would be an acceptable workaround here. Failing that, I'd document the
decision not to allow users to go back and edit individual responses on
the grounds that it would invalidate the purpose of the test.
