> Status: Rejected
> Change Description: no spec change
> Rationale: I concurr with Thomas in this e-mail:
>    http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Oct/0707.html
> It seems to me that we _should_ be calling authors out on this kind of mistake.
> Just because people do something doesn't mean we should make it valid — after
> all, we made <font> invalid, along with many other things. Conformance is about
> trying to advise authors to do the right thing.
> I have added text to the spec that encourages conformance checkers to be very
> careful about how they complain about these issues, by the way, so that authors
> aren't encouraged to remove ARIA support but are instead encouraged to use the
> right elements.
