4.2.2.1:  When content violates either the general flash threshold or the red flash threshold, users are warned in a way that they can avoid it.

4.2.2.2:  If the user can enter the content using the keyboard, then the user can exit the content using the keyboard.

These two sc have little to do with each other, save the conditional for applying them.  It seems disingenuous to combine two rather disparate checkpoints into one.

I suggest that current 4.2.3 be renumbered to 4.2.4.

4.2.2.1 becomes 4.2.2.  4.2.2.2 becomes 4.2.3.

4.2.2:  When content violates either the general flash threshold or the red flash threshold, users are warned in a way that they can avoid it, even if the content uses a technology that is not in the chosen baseline.

4.2.3:  If the user can enter the content using the keyboard, then the user can exit the content using the keyboard, even if the content uses a technology that is not in the chosen baseline.
