Re: ISSUE-31 Change Proposal

This change proposal needs to be updated both in order to provide a 
rationale for each change requested, and to reflect differences from the 
current draft of the document.

As a concrete example, the proposal provides no rationale for removing 
the paragraph-section-heading "loophole" save for a pointer to a bug 
report, and the resolution of that bug report indicates that that 
condition was removed.  Looking at the current text, this condition is 
indeed no longer present:

http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#guidance-for-conformance-checkers

Other specific examples: There is rationale given for allowing 
role="presentation", aria-label or aria-labeledby as exemptions for alt.
