Dear WCAG Working Group,

Thank you so much for clarification.  I understood it.

> Working Group Resolution (LC-2893):
> Thank you for your comment. The opinion of the working group is that the
> color-contrast ratio of the link text when focused or hovered does not need
> to meet 1.4.3/1.4.6. The goal of the color contrast success criteria is to
> ensure that content can be read by users, so as long as the links are
> sufficient contrast when not focused/hovered then they will meet
> 1.4.3/1.4.6.
>
> It is definitely preferred that focused/hovered link text also meet the
> contrast ratios as this enables users to re-read and verify the target of
> the link, but this represents more of a usability issue as the user can
> easily read the link text by removing focus or moving their pointer off the
> link.
