Spawned windows: As mentioned in a previous comment, the SC this maps to
outlaws change in context when a user does something, but doesn't outlaw
change in context without user initiation.

Proposed Change:

Create a new SC outlawing changes in context without user initiation at
Level 1 (I am happy to write this)

----------------------------
Response from Working Group:
----------------------------

The mapping has been removed from the WCAG document itself. The working
group will work in coordination with the EOWG WCAG 2.0 Materials Support
Task Force in the creation of transition materials and will consider these
comments when the mapping is updated. We intend to add SC 2.2.1 to the
mapping for WCAG 1.0 Checkpoint 10.1.

The working group believes that the ability for user agents and AT to
suppress and/or notify users about pop-up windows, along with the four
success criterion (3.2.1, 3.2.2 3.2.5 and 2.2.1) address the concerns about
changes in context without user initiation.  Because there is some
functionality that cannot be supported without asynchronous changes of
context, SC 3.2.5 is a level AAA success criterion.
