At today's telecon we decided to add your statement, "if controls are 
purposefully made to behave in unexpected or irregular fashion for a 
specific purpose (demonstration, humor, mystery, etc) then this is so 
stated on the pages or intro to the pages."
[from: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-gl/2001JulSep/0460.html]

However, the following statement already exists:
document unusual user interface features or behaviors that are likely to 
confuse the first-time user

These seem similar to me.  Could you explain the difference between them?

If they aren't too different, I think yours emphasizes an interesting 
point.  What about:
Document user interface features designed to behave unexpectedly or 
irregularly for a specific purpose such as demonstration, humor, or mystery.

Either that or perhaps move the "such as" into an example.
