This comment is in regard to Guideline 2.3 / Criterion 2.3.1 of the 
Working Draft of the W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 
version 2.0, on warning users to avoid content that could cause 
seizures due to photosensitivity.

I'm concerned that flash content warnings will be useful mainly to 
adults who already know that they are vulnerable to photosensitive 
seizures. But young children are far more likely to suffer 
photosensitive seizures, and to be unaware of their condition (as may 
be their parents, teachers, and doctors). How will children benefit 
from flash content warnings?
