"Until user agents..." version2

I already sent this today, but fear that it might have come through with
lots of HTML gunk -- apologies -- here it is again for those who gave up
reading the original post in frustration :)

As many of you are no doubt aware, there are a number of WCAG 1.0
checkpoints that begin with: "Until user agents..."

They are 7.1 (flickering), 7.2 (blinking), 7.3 (moving content), 7.4
(refresh), 7.5 (auto-redirect), 10.1 (spawned windows), 10.2 (explicit form
associations), 10.5 (adjacent links), 1.5 (redundant text links for client
side image maps), 10.3 (side by side text), 10.4 (empty form controls).

It seems to be the consensus that 1.5, 10.3 and 10.4 no longer apply, since
there is wide user agent support addressing these concerns.

Are folks now starting to treat some of these other "Until..." checkpoints
with similar redundancy.
