I did some testing:

<input type="button" name="test" value="test" aria-pressed="true">

<input type="button" name="test" value="test" aria-pressed="true"
role="button">

In IE 9 and Firefox 9 on windows the aria-pressed state is ONLY exposed in a11y
API when the explicit role is present, so the W3C matches implementations.
