In version UndoManager and DOM Transaction
Proposal Working Draft — 9 August 2011


	A managed transaction is a transaction where DOM 
	changes is tracked by the user agent and the logic 
	to unapply or reapply the transaction is implicitly 
	created by the user agent.

-> "user agent transaction" 

	A manual transaction is a transaction where the 
	logic to apply, unapply, or reapply the transaction 
	is explicitly defined by an application.

/by an application/by a(n author) script/
-> "(author) script transaction"

ps: I would not put author personally.
