Hi Janaina,
i have added the actions from the lexical processing document (
http://www.w3.org/2011/01/aria-lexical-processing) to the aria subteam
agenda for today.

The additions to the HTML5 spec called for in the document, quoted below,
are outside of the scope of Issue129 and if what is outlined is to be added
to the HTML5 specification it will require co-ordination with the HTML WG
chairs and their advice on how to proceed.

"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
attribute<http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/elements.html#global-attributes>.

   - Define in Annotations for assistive technology products
(ARIA)<http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/content-models.html#annotations-for-assistive-technology-products-aria>that
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."


with regards
