    Anything with a timer needs to have play/pause functionality for proper accessibility. This is more general than just Carousel, but yes it is very important for Carousel. 

    I see many naive implementations of timers that just use setInterval. A proper implementation needs control over play/pause and awareness of the page state so it doesn't run when browser tab is not visible etc.
