May I suggest we ask for Issue- 14 Integration of WAI-ARIA roles into HTML5
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/14  be re-opened as the new
proposal goes to the heart of this issue.

regards

         The ARIA mapping sub group has completed one of its deliverables:

         summary of the proposal:
         Replace the current ARIA in HTML5 conformance section 3.2.6 with
         the ARIA in HTML5 conformance section 3.2.6 provided.


         please review the section '3.2.6 Use of WAI-ARIA Roles, States and
         Properties in HTML'  developed by the ARIA mapping sub team
         http://www.paciellogroup.com/blog/misc/HTML5/aria-html5-proposal.html


         the change proposal on the wiki is still be worked:
         ARIA in HTML5: replace current text of section 3.2.6
         http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/ARIAinHTML5

   This change proposal goes considerably beyond the scope of issues 85
   (which is only about the role of the <a> element) and 109 (which is only
   about the title). I don't think rewriting the whole section is a fitting
   a Change Proposal for these two narrowly scoped issues.

   I suggest filing one or more bugs with the proposed changes (ideally
   describing the changes in prose rather than just referencing the
   alternate text).

   Regards,
   Maciej
