Yes. I was confused for a while as to why I couldn't select the second
set. Or maybe no. But let the user know why they cant be used.

It might be even better to really allow the selection. The next state
change must be preceeded by a sequence selection each and every time if
you are not wanting to use the default (first) sequence. That would make
sense to me too.
