The latest outlook has now been revised to be "no sooner than 11 Sept".

Current status on the expedited formal objection[1] is that it 
identifies a single paragraph to be removed.  Two proposed replacements 
have been identified:

https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=18744#c0
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=18745#c2

We have some indication that WAI ARIA would be the right place to 
discuss proposed wording:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2012Aug/0284.html

No time schedule was mentioned for providing said wording.

The same minutes suggested that "jurisdiction" was a key concern.  The 
formal objection itself makes a similar case.

As this may take some time to resolve, I would like to Robin Berjon to 
scope out what it would take to split out all ARIA integration from the 
HTML document into a separate spec that could proceed at a different 
pace from the rest of the document, and with the intent that said 
document could become a joint deliverable of the HTML WG and the PFWG.

It looks like there currently are approximately 150 occurrences.

$ grep "\baria\b" source | wc -l
149

Note: this request is just to scope out the effort, not to make the 
changes.  The request is to get this information together -- possibly 
incomplete -- by September 11, noon ET.
