As stated in ARIA 1.0  

"authors MUST use a WAI-ARIA role on an element in order to use non-global
states and properties on that element."

If you have an issue with what is specified in ARIA and implemented in user
agents file a bug.

I can live with the loose conformance rules in the W3C HTML5 spec in this
regard and care little for what is stated in documents I can have no effect
upon. But would prefer to see the conformance requirements in the W3C HTML5
spec be tightened up to discourage redundant role usage, while allowing role
usage where required. you call Ian.
