If the things you have to identify are not readily visually identifiable, it might fail under requirements for contrast. I think there is a bug here in WCAG that should be fixed, requiring controls to be operable.

Many carousels also technically fail on timing requirements.

I don't hate them as much as most people. Although I wish we had the tabpanels spec implemented, and people could easily reset the presentation to be a well-behaved panelset under simple user control :)
