Generic use of the term

HTD, re: your comment in the description of an otherwise unrelated edit, here is an incomplete list of generic "automaton" usage in Paizo products prior to the Construct Handbook justify the disambiguation notes:

My comment was more about generic usage of 'clockwork' than 'automaton', but my point was that the disambiguation needed to be rephrased, and it's fine now. - HTD (talk) 07:54, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
