the post makes reference to a document WAI-ARIA Lexical
Processing<http://www.w3.org/2011/01/aria-lexical-processing>in which
it states

HTML ISSUE-129 <http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/129> addresses ARIA
integration in HTML 5. The Protocols and Formats Working Group will pursue
the following steps to clarify lexical processing of WAI-ARIA in HTML 5 as
part of this issue:

   - Provide a definition for the role attribute, since one is not defined
   by WAI-ARIA. This should be a global

   - Define in Annotations for assistive technology products
the states and properties are formally HTML attributes, in addition to
   simply providing mapping information.
   - Expand the same section to describe rules for lexical processing of
   WAI-ARIA attributes.
   - Define lexical processing rules for embedded content, such as SVG, as
   well as rules for WAI-ARIA used in such content"

be great if this was brought to the attention of the html wg accessibility
taskforce ariasmmapping team.
