            Bug ID: 27080
           Summary: Every mapping should have both an IA2 role and a MSAA
                    role
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML a11y APIs (editor: Steve Faulkner, Cynthia
                    Shelly)

In the MSAA + IAccessible2 column, everything with a IA2-specific role should
have an MSAA role as well, for backwards compatibility. For example, the
WAI-ARIA User Agent Implementation Guide maps menuitemcheckbox to
ROLE_SYSTEM_CHECKBUTTON or ROLE_SYSTEM_MENUITEM (admittedly confusing - which
one?) but then says it should expose an IA2 role of IA2_ROLE_CHECK_MENU_ITEM -
but the HTML AAPI just lists IA2_ROLE_CHECK_MENU_ITEM.
