Status: Did Not Understand Request
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: I still don't understand the problem here. If the problem is just
that bug 10919 was resolved in a way that you disagree with, please reopen or
escalate that bug as per comment 4. If the problem is that ARIA doesn't define
what happens when the user focuses a focusable element with role=presentation,
then that's a bug in ARIA, regardless of whether that combination is allowed or
not. If the bug is that browsers don't do what ARIA says, then file the bugs
with the browsers. Note that allowing a role on an element has no relationship
with whether browsers will support that role on an element, so the "that is how
it is implemented" part of comment 0 makes no sense.
