OK

 

Seems like timeout would cover it anyway if it were a problem.

You could.  But, I haven't seen this much in the real world, except in
response to user action (Iike clicking a button).  As long as it's in
response to user action, I don't think it's an accessibility problem.  I
just don't think it's common enough to qualify as a "common" failure.

Couldn't you do it in script?  Or Flash?  Or Director?   Applets?

At least for HTML, the only ways I know of to "create a complete change of
main content through an automatic refresh" are to use meta-refresh or
script.  Both can be disabled in browsers.  Are there other technologies
that have these issues?  If so, we could create a general technique about
it.  If not, then I don't think this is a common failure for HTML, and I
propose that we delete it.
