Nobody is asking the ARIA spec to list every case. All I'm saying is that it
should describe the processing of roles in the specification. Right now, ARIA
does not say that role=presentational means that you skip the element in the
DOM when determining what the child of an element is, all it does is remove the
element from the accessible tree which is presumably what is exposed to ATs
(note that this is _not_ the same as the tree that has the ARIA annotations 
it's what the tree with ARIA annotations is turned into).

I respect everyone's opinion that this is what they want ARIA to say, but as
editor I have to make sure that the HTML spec is actually compatible with what
ARIA actually says, otherwise we are back to the world where the specs have to
have "priests" to "interpret" them like holy texts, and there's no chance of
getting interoperability by just following the specs.
