To be clear for everyone, the language being accepted is at https://rawgit.com/w3c/wcag21/accidental-activation_ISSUE-65//guidelines/#accidental-activation

Here’s the SC text:

For single-pointer activation, at least one of the following is true:

  *   Activation is on the up event, either explicitly or implicitly as a platform's generic activation/click event;
  *   A mechanism is available that allows the user to choose the up-event as an option;
  *   Confirmation is provided, which can dismiss activation;
  *   Activation is reversible;
  *   Down-event activation event is essential and waiting for the up-event would invalidate the activity.
