from reading WCAG 2.0, it is not clear for me what "initiated by user 
action" means. Selecting an option in a select menu is a user action, 
that the user initiates. So some change of context may be allowed. But 
which? Every possible change of context? It is a level 3 criterion, so I 
thought, it may be quite strict. Am I wrong?
