I think Don is right too, but I think the issue of control is quite
separate from the need for a WCAG requirement to facilitate accessible
content from user submission.  Maybe we can draw from UAAG for this?

I think Don is right, that to the degree that these sorts of exceptions
are allowed at all, they would be covered by what it means to be
controlled. That isn't spelled out in these proposals, and the
discussion in the subgroup had moved away from these issues, which seem
specific to user-contributed content, as we wrestled with issues like
web applications that can display content from arbitrary URLs, etc. 

If this would affect your response, please note it in the comments. Feel
free to suggest modifications or new proposals.
