I'm not proposing deleting the SC, just the common failure technique.

I'm a bit concerned about making a decision yet. I didn't notice any responses to questions I raised http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-gl/2006JanMar/0440.html. I could live with deleting the SC if it's true that it's completely covered by timeout. But not all the techniques that map to 3.2.5 http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=How_to_Meet_Success_Criterion_3.2.5 have also been mapped to a timeout SC. Those techniques have been accepted by the group. If we believe all those techniques can reasonably be mapped to something under 2.2, then I could see removing it; otherwise, I think we're being too hasty. I think it's a stretch to map some of those techniques, so at least for the moment I continue to believe we should not remove the SC.

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.
