Data Peristence for Submitted-Edited-Resubmitted Responses Despite Question Skip-Logic

In my survey form, one main select_one question, "Outcome", determines later questions to be answered with the 'relevant' property, and takes on possible values essentially of 'Yes', 'No', and 'Unable to Test'. 'Yes' and 'No' responses receive one line of questioning, while 'Unable to Test' receives its own line of questioning.


However, during data reviews in the current collection stage, two responses were found to have responses to both the 'Yes/No' and 'Unable to Test' lines of questioning, something that the relevant property should not allow. The unusual results were able to be reproduced by submitting the survey as 'Unable to Test', editing responses to access the 'Yes/No' line of questioning, and then resubmitting the survey.


In my opinion, that doesn't seem like intended functionality and could certainly impact frequency results of a variable if the issue isn't noticed. Is there a way to properly NULL out responses when a submitted survey receives an edit that changes its skip-logic?
