Testability of Animation from interactions Issue 18

Hi all,

I am the manager of Issue 18 Animation from interactions [1].  David
noted an issue on his spreadsheet that the proposal:

"Significant - is hard to test. Big requirement on modern animated
web... minimal research available on triggering characteristics such
as (length of exposure, speed, provocation, time of day, etc.)"

The test in the proposal is:

For each example of animation on a page/view check if:

1. The animation is triggered by a user-action, and
2. the animation includes movement that is not essential to the action, and
3. the animation takes more than 1 second and affects more than 1/3 of
the webpage view, and
4. there is no way of using the webpage without triggering the animation.

If all are true then it fails.

Do others think it is hard to test? If so, how could it be made easier?

Thank you.

Kindest regards,
