Summary of Issue: F60 may either apply also to SC 3.2.2 (On Input) or need further specification (context change announced/expected, window type)
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Opening a new window as a result of user text input is clearly an unexpected change of context and would seem to violate nit just SC 3.2.5 (Change on Request) but also the A-level SC 3.2.2 (On input)

Proposed Change:
Either:
* Preferably, make F60 applicable also to SC 3.2.2 (On Input)
* Specify that the change in response to text input should be expected / explained before it occurs, icnclude that in the test procedure
* Differentiate between opening a new window proper (i.e., a browser window) and opeing a pseudo-window (e.g. a lightbox) which would not necessarily constitute a (disorienting) change of context
