I too think so. And it is my opinion that it is, so far, the expressed 
sentiment of the group. So I think that it's a good candidate for our rec 
track document.

SCIs outside the chrome area are definitely bad.  I would hope that's
something we can all agree upon?

Conversely, in the content area, things that look similar to SCIs are
also bad.  A common example of this would be banks who place a padlock
image on their home pages.

Any opinions expressed above are my own, and do not necessarily
represent Wells Fargo.  :-)

   Of course that was supposed to say "outside the chrome" or "in the
content region".
