4.4 Slow Multimedia

I found this note interesting in light of our discussion two weeks ago 
about 3.1 (Toggle background images) and DHTML libraries that use CSS 
tricks (e.g. background) to draw widgets.

Note: The style exception of this checkpoint is based on the assumption 
that authors have satisfied the requirements of the "Web Content 
Accessibility Guidelines 1.0" [WCAG10] not to convey information through 
style alone (e.g., through color alone or style sheets alone).

I see how it fits in the 4.4 section. Does it also suggest any changes in 

I have no comments about the remainder of 4.1 - 4.7.

Backtracking a bit to 3.2 (Toggle audio, video, animated images), I 
noticed a new use of animated images the other day that should probably be 
user configurable (i.e. on/off). Visit http://www.ethicalhacker.net/ in 
Firefox and watch the site icon that shows up on both the page tab and the 
URL bar. It's a looping (and distracting) animated GIF. It's not part of 
the content of any page per se, but it is delivered to and shown by the 
browser when the user visits any page on the site. Should the techniques 
for 3.2 make it explicit that a UA must allow a user to turn on/off 
animated content that is not rendered within the main content, but still 
delivered as content and shown elsewhere in the user agent chrome?
