This was one of my questions I had in making the changes.  Does using entities a good or bad practice.  

This issue would be a part of the ARIA practices and there should be some information about how to include state information in each of the examples.

I don’t see a specific section of the authoring practices address the issues of synchronizing aria and visual states and how different techniques affect people with disabilities and development issues.

I hope we can talk about this today for a bit.
