Response from the Working Group

>From your initial description and followup information it seems the
user has only two options - to continue to subsequent pages based on
the user's input within each menu section or to navigate back to the
top page. This would classify the pages within each menu section as
steps within a process and thus satisfy the exception for SC 2.4.5.
