Hi David,

> If we want slow scroll to be in scope, then I would suggest reintroducing our time exemption, scoping out animations less than 3 seconds, or 1 second at least.

I don’t think that is necessary.

From the proposed SC text:

“Motion or size animations triggered by a user action can be disabled without preventing the action, unless the animation is essential to the functionality or the information being conveyed.”

Slow-scroll is an animation the author has added to the native functionality, and not required for performing the action, so is not “essential”.

It would make a good example in the understanding though.
