  Hi,

One of the most used navigation design pattern on website or application 
is tabs.
So I'm wondering why there isn't a new html5 element to manage that 
instead of ARIA/XUL/dl/ul, etc

Maybe we can have something like :
<tl>
<ti></ti>
<tc></tc>
<ti></ti>
<tc></tc>
<ti></ti>
<tc></tc>
</tl>

or with attribute

<tl>
<ti id="xxx"></ti>
<ti id="zzz"></ti>
<ti id="yyy"></ti>
<tc for="xxx"></tc>
<tc for="zzz"></tc>
<tc for="yyy"></tc>
</tl>

detailed specifications for these elements can be taken from the ARIA 
spec http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-wai-aria-20100916/roles#tab

Best regards,

Aurélien Levy
