See comment #27 from Steve
> If it is agreed, then a complete list of legitimate exceptions can be provided.

And see comment #28 from Aryeh:
> So if everyone is okay with this, we just need a list of what roles should be
> allowed despite being redundant.  The current sentence that was left in the
> WHATWG spec ("Authors must not set the ARIA role and aria-* attributes to
> values that match the default implicit ARIA semantics defined in the following
> two tables") is too broad.

Given those comments, it seems this bug is waiting on somebody (Steve?) to
provide a proposed list of roles.
