I think this text might be confusing network interactions and user actions (which also touches on Roy's comments on this paragraph). Would you accept the following friendly revision to the non-normative text?

> Page loads, navigation, object mouse-overs, image clicks, hyperlink clicks, sub-element re-loads and form entry submissions are all examples of user actions that may initiate network interactions.
