RE: Request for review: draft Web Technology Accessibility Guidelines checklist

To Jason

Just one note in preparation for our meeting.  For checkpoint

'Technology does not allow blinking or flashing of content, or provides a feature for users to quickly turn it off or permanently disable it.'

I was wondering if its worth specifying 'without any loss of meaning' at the end, just in case the blinking or flashing was originally included to deliver some sort of specific meaning.   Alternatively I"d be happy to just say blinking and flashing is not allowed, but if the door is opened for its use then it may be worth just specifying that turning it off doesn't affect the content.
