Jon, Thank you for starting this thread.

I would add:
1. Any information that is conveyed through tool tips (including for
buttons, images etc,)
2. Similar to data tables, forms in grid model (such as survey forms)
3. Text embedded on to an image (though it magnifies, often there would be
a blur).

Thanks,
Srini
