Authors should ensure a reduction in motion does not negatively affect
 the usability of the interface. If movement was used to convey 
information (such as an action or relationship between two UI 
elements), the reduced motion variant should retain the same level of 
understandability. 

For example, if a _queuing_ action was conveyed by "moving the object 
into a queue position", then removing the animation entirely could 
result in the user not knowing the item had been successfully queued. 
It may be appropriate to draw the user's eye to the queued position 
using a different design metaphor, such as a badge or or variant of 
the [fade technique](https://signalvnoise.com/archives/000558.php).
