Maybe you could provide a screenshot again to clarify what your  
intention is...

I can only see two states:

you're either
	* allowed or
	* not allowed
to do something, which for me is a checkbox.

My guess is that you see it in the sense of the action of setting the  
value. Then it males sense for this process of
	* setting the value to on
	* unsetting the value to off or
	* leaving it as it is.

For this you'd still need to display the current status of the value  
_on_ or _off_ which again is a checkbox.

- don't make the user think, stick with known practices
