Response from the Working Group
================================
We are interpreting your question about such a flash movie as a
question about flash content that contains only buttons and not video.
If the flash content in your example contains only buttons and the
presentation of those buttons or the or user's ability to interact
with them are not time-sensitive, then the flash content would not be
video-only because it is not a "time-based presentation."
