The stated purpose of ARIA is to only affect how browsers expose stuff to
accessibility APIs. Making browsers do other things based on ARIA would be
contrary to the purpose of ARIA.

As I read http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria/states_and_properties#aria-autocomplete
the purpose of aria-autocomplete is to tell AT that there is a non-native
autocompletion mechanism implemented in JavaScript in place. The purpose isn't
to invoke browser-native autocompletion.
