For my ACTION-765 - Propose a new 2.3.X that is the list version of direct commands notification...
AND propose some edits to 2.3.2
AND some edits to the Direct Command glossary entry...

2.3.1 Direct Navigation to Important Elements: The user can *navigate directly* to any *important elements* in *rendered content*. (Level AA)

2.3.2 Present Direct Commands from Rendered Content (Enhanced): The user can receive a presentation of any *recognized* *direct commands* from the *rendered content* with their associated elements (e.g., as an overlay). (Level AA)

command, direct command, direct navigation command, direct activation command, linear navigation command , spatial (directional) command, structural navigation command
- direct commands apply to a specified item (e.g., button) or action (e.g. save function), regardless of the current focus location
 + direct navigation commands move focus to the specified item 
 + direct activation commands activate the specified item (and may also move focus to it) or action
- linear navigation commands (sometimes called logical or sequential navigation commands) move focus forwards and backwards through a list of items
- structural navigation commands move focus forwards, backwards, up and down a hierarchy of items
- spatial commands (sometimes called directional commands), require the user to be cognizant of the spatial arrangement of items on the screen:
 + spatial navigation commands move focus from one item to another based on direction on the screen
 + spatial manipulation commands resize or reposition an item on the screen

2.3.3 Direct Activation of Enabled Elements: The user can move directly to and activate any enabled elements in rendered content. (Level AA)
