I would not interpret the exception "User agent control" as applying only to content that uses *no CSS at all*.  I would think it applies to content that relies on UA controlled default sizes of interactive elements and does not use CSS to increase target size (or goes further with superimposed custom elements) .

> 	The re-worded exception for user agent control, now meant to exempt controls without styling, reads: “the target is determined by the user agent and is not modified by the author”.  I feel like this was accepted pretty hastily without clarification on where the line in the CSS sand actually lies.  I take this to mean that if any style properties are specified that cascade to a target, then the exception no longer applies.  Is that correct?  For example, if my CSS has a single line to specify a font and nothing else, am I expected now to add more properties to make my “Send” button bigger because “Send” will take the new font?
