I wonder if we could have a 'warning'  category?  So it's not a hard fail,  with all the baggage of gaining consensus, but a common anti pattern that could cause known a11y issues?

Would that be useful in a WCAG.next ?

I would prefer them to be in non-normative techniques, if anywhere, not in the guidelines proper.

I thought we were only talking about what should belong in non-normative material in this discussion, yet some people keep referring to WCAG Next, so I really don’t understand what is being proposed.
