                    spec says to; instead, they have default mappings from

Section:

Comment:
It has been brought to my attention by some browser vendors that browsers
don't actually implement accessibility API annotations exactly the way the
ARIA spec says to; instead, they have default mappings from HTML directly to
the accessibility APIs that they use unless an explicit role="" has been
given. So it might make sense to change this section so that it is nothing but
conformance criteria for authors, removing the UA conformance criteria
relating to ARIA and platform AAPIs from the HTML spec altogether.
