Hi Maciej,

This issue should have been sorted out at the first pass, instead
collectivley many hours have been wasted only because the HTML5 editor
is intent on playing his pathetic power games with the chairs over
control of the spec.

There is one difference (in regards to my proposed diff and Ians)

Ians:

"heading role, with the aria-level property set to the element's outline depth
Role must be either link, menuitem, menuitemcheckbox, menuitemradio,
tab, or treeitem"

 mine explcilty allows the headings role, rather than implicitly:

"heading role, with the aria-level property set to the element's outline depth
Role must be either HEADING link, menuitem, menuitemcheckbox,
menuitemradio, tab, or treeitem"


whether or not my change more accurately reflects the wording of the
decision is immaterial as I believe it more accuratley reflects the
intention.


regards
stevef
