I would also add that the work done was not limited dpub-aria. Myself and others spent countless hours driving the details/summary implementation in browsers and also the meetings on media queries.

I am happy to add something like this into the text, but I would prefer to have Tzviya's reaction first.

Publishers would not be willing (I guess) to adopt the dpub-aria terms in their own production until those are standards. Or, to be more precise, the chances that they would do that is very slim. However: publishers may have already adopted, for the same purposes, the epub:type attribute which differs from dpub-aria only syntactically. Hence, once dpub-aria becomes standard, they would switch to the new one and they can do that with, essentially, a switch in their production flow.
