 1) It makes the role attribute a mixed bag of AT-only stuff and other stuff. It would be clearer to keep the role attribute for AT-only stuff.
 2) It would be desirable to have a selector that matches on the outline depth. Making a selector depend on the outline algorithm makes the algorithm performance-sensitive. Doing stuff depending on an attribute value is likely to be more of an issue for performance than doing stuff based on the name of the element.
