Charles McN had a great idea when he brought this up.  But it may actually be a bit simpler to specify.
Rather than sav

  *   noFlashing
  *   noMotionSimulation
  *   noSound

in addition to the three properties we have today

  *   flashing
  *   motionSimulation
  *   sound

we might just want to have a state of "none" (saying that you checked and that there are no hazards that you are aware of).

That would change the spec to

  *   flashing
  *   motionSimulation
  *   sound
  *   none (or noHazard)

which makes it cleaner.  I think that saying the negative to each of the three properties would be a bit tedious.  And, of course, not having the property means that it has not been checked.

Chuck has updated the issues list to include the discussion of whether
accessHazard should state positive or negative information. See that post
and my comments, which are also below, at:

I believe we need both accessHazard=flashing and accessHazard=noFlashing,
etc.. This is because there are three cases we'd like to distinguish:

1. checked and it's fine
2. checked and it is NOT fine
3. didn't check

"Didn't check" can be signified by no metadata -- this will be most of the
content on the Web. In cases where someone has checked, let's record both
positive and negative states.
