it is certainly the intention that these roles would be used for any Web document, and not only for the area of digital publishing. There is no (there shouldn't be, if there is, it is a bug:-) any such restriction in the specification nor will there be in the upcoming AT mapping of those terms.

> Will these digital publishing roles be available for use in regular web pages? There is a need for things like footnotes, for example, in regular web pages, even if they're not in digital publications. I'm thinking of footnotes with legal disclaimers, the small print about special offers, etc. Will it be frowned-upon to use these new roles in those situations?

> Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module 1.0 extends WAI-ARIA 1.1 to define an ontology of roles, states, and properties specific to digital publishing. It facilitates automated processing and accessibility support by providing semantics that are not included in base languages such as HTML. It allows authors to convey structural information to assistive technologies, and to enable semantic navigation, styling, and interactive features used by readers.
