I think they should be kept together, but reworded slightly. What we have
is an important general rule (no more than 3 times/second) with has some
Products must not flash more than 3 times in any one second period, unless:
* Flashing created by software is under the general flash and red flash
* Flashing created by hardware is either:
** greater than YYY candelas; or
** greater than 20 candelas/sq meter and contiguously occupies more than a
total of .006 steradians (25% of any 10 degree visual field).
