Another change I recommend for the 'Using ARIA in HTML' document [1] is 
that, when the equivalent ARIA _role_ does not exist, then instead of 
just saying "none", instead say "no role". Justification: "No role" is 
what HTML5 says.[2]

With such a change, the particular table example I made, would look 
like this:

Native HTML f|Equiv ARIA f|Rely on native HTML f?|Alt. non-equiv ARIA f.
-------------|------------|----------------------|----------------------
    table    | no role    |          YES         | # roles: any,HOWEVER:
             |            |                      | ## only grid recc'ed
             |            |                      | ## presentation unrec
             |            |                      | # aria-*: global

PS: The doc has <h1>Using ARIA in HTML</h1>. Simultaneously it also has 
<title>Using ARIA in HTML5</title>. They should say the same, no?
