           Summary: add role attribute to list of global attributes and
                    add definition for it
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: mike@w3.org
         QAContact: public-html-bugzilla@w3.org
                CC: mike@w3.org, public-html-wg-issue-tracking@w3.org,

per http://www.w3.org/2011/01/aria-lexical-processing it appears to be the
expectation of the PFWG that the HTML5 spec should include the role attribute
among the set of attributes that are considered global attributes for the
language, and should define the attribute.

So this is a request to make the following specific changes to the spec:

1. Add the role attribute to the list of global attributes at

2. Add under
a new "The role attribute" subsection that gives a definition for the attribute
