    I think most would want to have manual override or at least additional manually operated options for lighting.
    Has that changed? A switched receptacle outlet used to comply, I believe.

    Switched receptacle is still a lighting outlet for this purpose. Is not allowed in certain rooms though those rooms have remained pretty much the same over the years.
