After some external discussion, I believe the general consensus is that this
would best be expressed as an attribute, and I believe that the title of this
bug should be modified to reflect this.

Summation of a back-and forth discussion between myself and Gez Lemon:
  "@johnfoliot The role is most likely to be dialog; modal is definitely not a
role, but the state of the object." - Gez Lemon

  "@johnfoliot I wouldn't want either: it's not a role (element or role
attribute), it's a state, which should be an attribute." - Gez Lemon

(twitter references likely to disappear in time)
