to put this in context:
This bug was raised in response to your enquiry:

"How should I integrate "aria-autocomplete" with the various autocompletion 
mechanisms in HTML5, specifically list="" on <input>, autocomplete="" on 
<form> and various controls, and UA-specific behaviour on all editable 
controls?"
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-pfwg-comments/2009JulSep/0004.html

your response at the time was:

"Please file a bug on any HTML5 issues so that I can track them separately.
Thanks."
