Status: Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: 

See bug 10450 comment 19. It seems that the ARIA spec is very confused on this
issue, but in the interests of expediency, and under the assumption that the
ARIA spec will be corrected to match implementations, I've changed the spec to
allow role=presentation everywhere.
