If it made people more comfortable I wouldn’t have a concern about adding:

Time Limits: For each time limit set by the content where user-entered data can be lost, the user is advised about the length of the time limit at the start of the process, unless any user-entered data is preserved for at least 24 hours after the limit is reached.

  *   Real-time Exception: The time limit is a required part of a real-time event (for example, an auction), and the length of the time limit is not known.

How’s that sound?
[Jason] This is better, although I don’t support the proposal as it stands – I think we need either the parallel success criterion to 2.2.1 that removes options 2 and 3, or the refinement of 2.2.5 that was considered at the meeting for inclusion at Level AA. Thus, I think the above is an improvement to the proposal, but I don’t favor the proposal as I think its claimed benefits are over-stated and it doesn’t address the underlying user need well.
