Even a correct resolution should have correct justification! Your justification
 leaves it unclear whether you understood the request. Thus I reopen it for
your (re-)verification


Clarification of my request:
--------------------

a) The ASCII fish image is located inside the <pre> element.
b) My request was thus that <pre> should have role="presentation". 

An acceptable justification for a WONTFIX:
-------------------------------

Per what Jonas said in Comment #4 and per section 5.2.8 of ARIA 1.0, then: [1]

]] The DOM descendants are presentational. User agents SHOULD NOT expose
tdescendants of this element through the platform accessibility API. If user
agents do not hide the descendant nodes, some information may be read twice.[[

This effectively means that the <pre> in your example automatically gets some
sort of role="presentation".
