Hi! I've looked at it. Two brief notes, for now:

(1) I notice that you, unlike how Steve and John have said (I believe), 
pose this solution as a *replacement of* - and not an alternative to - 
the accessible DOM. I believe you have had that approach the whole 
time, because the proposal has had the direction "HTML 4 Maps, not 
accessible DOM" all the time.

(2) May be you should push (harder) on the fact that this solution is 
more compatible with the 1001 variations of "Don't reinvent the 
cow/path/wheel" in our Design Principles, than the aDOM. ;-)

I hope to offer more input - later.
