Hi henri,

well a lot has happened, so much that I cannot remember what was agreed at
mandelieu or even if I agreed with it.

One of  the factors that lead me to file the bug was the mandating of
default roles that I disagree with, and also the incomplete implementaion
advice that the ARIA role mapping provides, but as I said in the bug in
response to you:

"I don't have a problem with the mapping tables being informative, It could
be
in the main spec or an appendix or a seperate document referenced from the
html5 spec. "

what is so problematic with providing detailed html element to accessibility
API mapping advice in the HTML5 spec anyway?

regards
