The more I think about it, the less I think it is actually "contextual", which implies it is about the context the item is within.

It isn't about the local context, it is about cross-site conventions.

I'm really struggling to think of a good term for that, but re-visiting my last suggestion for the SC, perhaps it could be something like:

“Personalisation: For navigation, form elements and interactive controls _conventional_elements_ can be programmatically determined.”

Then define "conventional elements" as those which are included in a publicly available taxonomy for this purpose, of which coga-personalisation is one.

That would mean it doesn’t have to be ‘common’ items, they need to be ones covered by a share taxonomy.
[Jason] The taxonomy also has to be accessibility-supported, which is a desirable constraint, otherwise the users don’t benefit.
