I guess one would not be able to really enforce it. I'd expect the 
applet to automatically create a change group when it sends the first 
create/update/delete command, and then give the user the chance to edit 
that change group's comment later. Of course it would be better in terms 
of data clarity to require the user to describe what he things he is 
about to do (lest it be forgotten later), but that is impractical and 
would scare people away.
