Splitting hairs perhaps, but an alert that appears and then disappears 
has, in fact, a "time limit set by the content" in that sense. So I'd 
still maintain that in spirit, this scenario is covered, but agree it 
should be more explicitly addressed in the understanding document as an 
example (perhaps as a failure example - the alert appearing and then 
disappearing, with the suggestion to simply remove the automatic 
hiding/disappearing and to leave it visible until the user dismises it 
explicitly with a "Close" or "Got it..." type control; failing that, 
suggesting that the site should provide some global setting for users to 
disable auto-hiding of alerts, so that the alerts could do the current 
hiding, but that a user who has problems with this can switch it off)
