            Bug ID: 23420
           Summary: All AX API RoleDescription values should quoted
                    strings (and localized)
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML a11y APIs (editor: Steve Faulkner, Cynthia
          Assignee: faulkner.steve@gmail.com

Please notice the ARIA implementation lists the AX API values as (example):

  AXRole: AXGroup
  AXSubrole: <nil>
  AXRoleDescription: "group" (note the quotation marks)

And the table has a note stating all AXRoleDescription values are localized,
user-presentable strings.

The html-aapi does not make these two details clear.

1. It's a string.
2. It's localized by the user agent.
