Thanks, Steve, your comments here are very helpful. I believe the bug should be
ready for action by the editor now. I have comments on just one of these:

That doesn't seem quite right to me. <details> is intended to be presented much
like a "disclosure triangle" control on Mac OS X, it includes an affordance
indicating the presence of details, the label inside the <summary> element, and
the actual details content. I don't think this acts like a button - most of it
(the details part) will not even react to clicks. I don't think there is an
appropriate ARIA role for this whole element, although it could be presented
via assistive technologies as a compound control which among other things
includes a button.
