2.2.6: This should be at Level 2. If someone is using an authenticated
session and cannot complete the information before automatic logoff, then
being able to continue after re-login is imperative in order to use the
system. Otherwise the system is inaccessible

Proposed Change:

Move 2.2.6 to Level 1

Response from Working Group:

The working group has discussed this issue. The criteria for having
something at Level AA is that it must be something that can reasonably be
applied to all Web content. But there are valid reasons, such as financial
security or personal information where this cannot be done because it is
against regulations to preserve any of this information once a session
expires or is terminated. The working group therefore decided to put this
requirement at Level AAA.
Response from GSW:
I disagree with this decision. One solution would be to put this at Level 1
or Level 2 and temper the SC by saying "except where the form has legal or
financial purposes" as has been done in other SC
