My understanding is we should be taking WCAG at face value.  I do not believe that this list is the correct venue for discussing If something is meant by that example other than what it plainly states.

that example was added to say

"If the only way to get to some page is to go first through a CAPTCHA page -- then you do not have to have a second way to get to that page (besides the captcha page) because doing a CAPTCHA first is part of the process. "

For Tuesday, might we survey if task force members believe that most (all?) software falls into the "except where the [X] is the result of, or a step in, a process" half of 2.4.5?

I submit that WCAG has a pretty broad definition of "process".  Please see Example 2:  "An account registration page requires successful completion of a Turing test before the registration form can be accessed."
