My mistake, Steve. I filed bug 10487 for these two, since they seem like a
different and simpler case.

Let's have this bug represent only the following:

a (that represents a hyperlink -> button, link, menuitem, menuitemcheckbox,
menuitemradio, radio, slider, scrollbar, progressbar
area (that represents a hyperlink -> button, link, menuitem, menuitemcheckbox,
menuitemradio, radio, slider, scrollbar, progressbar
button -> button, link, menuitem, menuitemcheckbox, menuitemradio, radio,
slider, scrollbar, progressbar
input type=button-> button, link, menuitem, menuitemcheckbox, menuitemradio,
radio, slider, scrollbar, progressbar
input type=image -> button, link, menuitem, menuitemcheckbox, menuitemradio,
radio, slider, scrollbar, progressbar

Essentially these makes buttons and links interchangeable for ARIA purposes,
and allow either to be used as a variety of other roles, including scrollbars,
progress bars, sliders, etc.
