http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria/introduction#co-evolution explains it
pretty well. It starts out with

"WAI-ARIA is intended to be a bridging technology."

And later says

"It is expected that, over time, host languages will evolve to provide
semantics for objects that previously could only be declared with
WAI-ARIA. This is natural and desirable, as one goal of WAI-ARIA is to
help stimulate the emergence of more semantic markup."
