Hi Nick--

Thank you for your comment. Our consensus is that although it is a usability problem, it is not accessibility-specific so shouldn't be added to the WCAG 2.0 guidelines. Our reasoning is that it would have a negative impact on all users, and not just persons with disabilities.

Best regards,

Mike Elledge
