Summary of Issue: Should prohibit \"relies upon scripting\"
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Javascript will never be supported by all browsers all the time because it can make page elements, focus, browser local and more move around unpredictably; and it requires more processor power, which variously shortens battery life and increases electricity use, indirectly contributing to environmental damage.

Similar problems afflict all other scripting.

Proposed Change:
Prohibit \"relies on Javascript\" and any similar processing-required content from all WCAG conformance claims, while allowing it as \"used but not relied upon\".
