The stated purpose,  examples and evaluation process for C15 and C16 are
quite identical. But the former refers to SC 2.4.7 and the latter to C16.
Should C16 also refer to SC 2.4.7?

Refer to following:
C15: Using CSS to change the presentation of a user interface component when
it receives focus
C16: Changing the background color or border of the element with hover and

For C15: The objective of this technique is to demonstrate how the current
focus can be made visually evident by changing the appearance of the focused
element with CSS styling.
For C16: The objective of this technique is to demonstrate how visual
appearance may be enhanced via style sheets to provide visual feedback when
an interactive element has focus or when a user hovers over it using a
pointing device.
