Item Number: Success Criterion 3.2.2
Part of Item: 
Comment Type: TE
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
This criterion is unnecessarily and arbitrarily restricted to form controls and fields (of forms).

This restriction is undesirable.

Proposed Change:
Rewrite the sc in terms of user interface components rather than forms and

fields. For example, it could be expressed in terms of changing or setting the

state of a user interface component, where state would be defined to include

any kind of value that the component can accept as input.

Of course, there are other, simpler ways of generalizing this to user

interface components.
