I have completed this action item and updated the response to LC-2952

The WG agrees to that SCR2 is redundant with SCR20. There is some
discussion in SCR2 which is not in SCR20 and the code example is more
detailed, but after careful consideration of the Description of SCR2, its
Code Example, and Test, we feel we can safely delete SCR2 without migrating
any of it over to SCR20.

Information in SCR2 that is not included in SCR20 goes beyond the purpose
of a technique. SCR2 is as much a tutorial for how to create mouse hovers
as it is a device independence technique. We feel that SCR20 covers the
same information more concisely, and assumes correctly that developers
looking for SCR techniques will know JavaScript basics, and if not, they
can find those types of tutorials elsewhere.

For these reasons we agree to delete SCR2 without making any further
amendments to SCR20.
