A complete reduction of non-interaction triggered animation has to be 
allowed in the settings. Given the scenario where items animate into a
 scene, users prone to motions sickness, vertigo, migraines, or 
distraction need this turned off yet usable. 

Interaction triggered animation needs to be minimized, some stopped 
depending on what it is. Small animations such as color fades or 
animated icons on buttons or links likely won't cause a trigger point,
 but other animations non-essential to the control function may cause 
problems for users. 

Reducing motion is good. But stopping/preventing/pausing animation and
 making the content still readable, actionable, and usable is needed. 
Additionally, best practices should be worded in a PE approach of 
no-motion, reduced-motion, full-motion structuring of CSS.
