Can Applet flickering elicit epileptic attacks?

I know that fluctuating light can induce epileptic attacks
(by the way, is any mechanism known? I am a biophysicist, and know a
little bit about epilepsy).
Now Applets flicker a lot.
I know that the flicker can be diminished with double buffering,
but nevertheless some flickering remains.
Can I choose a certain sleep time value in my Applet?
Should I put a disclaimer for epileptics on my website?
Does anyone know about the legal aspects of this all? Can I get sued?
Or is there no problem at all?
