RE: Propose deleting failure for 3.2.5

You can do it in script, but script can be disabled in every user agent I know of.  Some of those other technologies could probably do it, but I question whether that would constitute a *common* failure.  Seems like a fairly rare failure to me.  I think that the techniques we have around how to use meta refresh and how to set up opt-in content refreshing cover it.  Perhaps it would make sense to add an HTML/script technique for opt-out content refresh, instead of this failure?

Couldn't you do it in script?  Or Flash?  Or Director?   Applets?

At least for HTML, the only ways I know of to "create a complete change of main content through an automatic refresh" are to use meta-refresh or script.  Both can be disabled in browsers.  Are there other technologies that have these issues?  If so, we could create a general technique about it.  If not, then I don't think this is a common failure for HTML, and I propose that we delete it.
