Without the same session limitation, I’m not sure if the security exception is broad enough to cover situations where saving the data is problematic for privacy reasons.  In some ways we are encouraging people to store a lot of information about users across sessions that they may not be aware of that is being saved.

Hi Michael,

> I believe a prior version had a note (or even normative wording) explaining that the process is constrained to the current user session.

That was removed last august: https://github.com/w3c/wcag/commit/45f7815e0cb484540e6d362244c35acea89e7bd3

> I also thought the search results example had been critiqued and decided to be removed?

We can check that, but the CFC is for the normative text. Understanding doc updates can be done separately.

> Finally, shouldn’t the 2 editor’s notes  beginning “Are there…” be removed before CFC?

All the “editor’s notes” will be removed prior to CR, but shouldn’t impact this CFC.

Kind regards,
