What about adding on focus as well as hover.

Katie’s version had:
> * not obscured by other content,

That has been switched from “does not obscure other content” to “not obscured by other content”, I think the first one was the intent?

However, having a mouse-over that obscures other content is exactly how drop-down menus are intended to work, it is too wide.

How about:
Informational content which appears on hover that is necessary for understanding must:
* be discernible,
* not obscure other content, and
* be available via any input method
 
“Informational content” to remove navigation elements like menus, and switching the obscure point back to the original intent.

Cheers,
