The section quoted in section 10 does not say what everyone here says it says.
As far as I can tell there's no other mention of "accessibility tree" or
"accessible tree" in the entire ARIA spec, so it's not clear to me what that
means. The spec does repeatedly make mention of "contained in or owned by"
(where "owned by" refers to use of the aria-owns="" attribute). It doesn't say
anything about following the relationships of the DOM ignoring elements with
role=presentational or anything about following relationships in an
accessibility tree.

So I would recommend getting the ARIA spec fixed first.
