Not sure if this is a good idea.
What if any of the checkbox or radio needs to be enabled by default?
Then this line will wrongly reset the checkbox/radio field.

Perhaps a better alternative here is to trigger a custom event, allowing developers to customize the custom term fields reset actions as they wish.

Second opinion would be nice here.

Closing ticket as wontfix.

This condition would be used by an extremely limited usecase, for which a cursory search of the WordPress plugins directory did not return any suggestions for. Such a plugin implementing it would likely have to implement a custom ajax handler anyways in order to make the user experience make any sense.

For the reason of having an extremely limited (if not for a handful of WordPress users) and lack of evidence of need, closing this ticket as wontfix.
