EDITOR'S RESPONSE: This is an Editor's Response to your comment. If you are
satisfied with this response, please change the state of this bug to CLOSED. If
you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML
Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest
title and text for the tracker issue; or you may create a tracker issue
yourself, if you are able to do so. For more details, see this document:

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: If you changed the role of a <details> element, the user could no
longer expand the <details> element to get to its contents. That would be a net
loss of accessibility. If you have a group of radio buttons inside a <details>
and you need to wrap them with role=radiogroup, then you should use an element
for that group; <details> is not it.
