Propose to add the following note to the intent of 3.2.2:
Note: The term "automatically" means more than automated action without human intervention.  It also includes the meaning of actions without thought or consideration.  In the cases where a change of context takes place to correct or alert user input error (see 3.3.1 and 3.3.3), it is not a violation of 3.2.2.  For example, it is not considered an automatic change of context to trigger a warning when user enters "25" in a MM:DD:YYYY date entry field.
